Step right up to the greatest show in town, this October half-term in Plymouth’s Central Park, Theatre Royal Plymouth will be hosting their iconic Funky Llama Festival with Big Top magic and funky Halloween Fun. TRP’s Funky Llama Festival will be held in Central Park, Plymouth on Friday 29 and Saturday 30 October.
Expect live music, DJs, craft stalls, a fully licensed bar, circus acts, a circus play area, comedy from local and national performers, and the latest show from Extraordinary Bodies – Human, the UK's leading disabled and non-disabled circus company and partnership between Diverse City and Cirque Bijou.
Human will be performed in the Big Top Tent and combines the visual spectacle of aerial circus and dance, film and a binaural soundtrack. Human is an antidote to anxiety, gently bridging the transition from being at home in a pandemic to live performance in a tender, quirky collage of lives past and now.
Victoria Whelan, Engagement Manager at Theatre Royal Plymouth said: “Funky Llama is one of TRP’s flagship community projects and after the events of the last year we are so excited to be able to bring people back together to celebrate one another. Complete with a big top in the heart of the city at Central Park, the vision for this event has been created by our differently abled steering group who have worked incredibly hard to make this event a reality for 2021.“
The Funky Llama Festival is inclusive and accessible fun for all. With wild costumes, wacky workshops and magical moments for everyone to enjoy, this is the festival fix needed after lockdown.
Tickets are on sale to the public now and can be booked online on the TRP website or by calling the Theatre Royal Plymouth Box Office on 01752 267222. Two-day packages and single day tickets are available.
The festival welcomes families and friends, open to all ages and all abilities. This year’s festival will be funkier than ever before, and after the year we’ve all had, we need a fabulous funky time!
