Site specific music, art, theatre and dance designed with a family audience come together to create a magical experience. The musical line-up is rife with accordions, ukuleles, banjo’s and horns with festival favourites Cut A Shine being joined by Skinny Lister, the Lovely Eggs and The Perhaps Contraption, an astonishing, twisted brass, art punk marching band. Just a few of the theatrical highlights are; Lost In Translation Circus production of La Balade de Bergerac a wild, breathtakingly beautiful circus show inspired by Cyrano De Bergerac; The Revenge of Mr Trout, a zany chaotic, interactive outdoor adventure and Taking Flight Theatre’s inclusive a Midsummer Night’s Dream. Co Director Rowan Hoban said “this will be the most adventurous and exciting programme line up we’ve ever had”
The award-winning festival, which takes place in Cheshire each August takes families out of their day to day lives and invites them to sing, dance, play, explore and discover art together in a spellbinding natural landscape. The festival is unique in its offer of a weekend packed entirely with performances and workshops specifically for families. It has grown from strength to strength in its first three years and organisers are certain that Just So Festival 2013 (16/17/18 August) will be the best yet.
In 2013 the festival team will be delving further into the woods on the Rode Hall Estate to bring the audience some exciting new areas including Telling Tales, a world full of books and The High Chaparral where everyone can release their inner cowboy. Buckets & Spades the beach installation from 2011 will be making a return and what better setting than the banks of the lake at Rode? Peekaboo, their area for 0-3 year olds will again be providing high quality performances and experiences designed around their smallest visitors.
The Just So team are gearing up to make a resounding success of their 4th annual festival for which Early Bird tickets sold out in September. Full details of all acts, activities, adventures and tickets are available on the website now at www.justsofestival.org.uk
