Enjoy the Footsbarn Theatre in Victoria Park

The Footsbarn Travelling Theatre, one of the world’s leading travelling theatres, has pitched up in Victoria Park until 4th July. They are, so they tell us, renowned for their exciting adaptations of classics such as Shakespeare & Moliere.

The theatre began in Cornwall in the seventies, rehearsing in a simple barn owned by the Foot family, hence its name, and following a brief spell with no fixed abode, they moved to France in 1991.

The show they're currently touring in our area is called Sorry! and sees the Footsbarn teaming up with Pierre Byland and Cirque Werdyn, a gypsy horse circus, to bring you "an evening of burlesque and anarchy" with clowns, undertakers, actors, tractors, corpses and horses. Your author doesn't understand either.
