Mr Alexander's Travelling Show
Mr Alexander has been perfecting his open-air one man show for over forty years. His show can be seen at many of Britain's greatest events as well as at many fine English country houses and sites, thanks to a special collaboration with English Heritage.
A unique and captivating blend of magic, juggling, unicycling, balance and illusion, the show is reminiscent of the Variety Shows of years ago. Closely choreographed and timed to ragtime and modern jazz, the show appeals to young and old alike. From the spectacular and gravity-defying three chair balance to his fascinating Linking Ring routine (which has been praised as the finest in Britain), the show guarantees to amuse, entertain and delight all who watch. He will present three or four set shows during a day, and also improvise new routines between shows. This year's improvisation becomes next year's show!
Set against the colourful and unique Victorian Theatre set, based on Pollocks twopenny coloured toy theatre, the open-air show has a feel of travelling shows of the twenties and thirties and the stage gives even the largest audiences a great view.
Daily show times will be advertised on the boards at his Victorian Theatre stage on the Kinecroft.
Mobile Climbing Wall
