WE are hosting street parties in Shoreham, Southwick, and Lancing on June 13, towards the conclusion of the festival, and not only will there be a full-range of activities and community performances at each party, we have also put together a fantastic programme of street theatre, based around the theme Food Of Love.

Reckless Invention will be at each party, presenting the Comedy Waiters, who will wow you with their effortless tricks and stunts, but also with their dancing, as the unique act goes musical with a boyband routine.

Tit for Tat perform at all the parties too, presenting A Most Dangerous Cup of Tea. This spectacular show sees a pair of oddballs do their best to make brewing a simple cup of tea a near lethal experience. Expect a lot of silliness.

Wet Picnic are bringing a pair of shows to the parties, performing Time for Tea and Dinner Table at each. Both productions are as suitable for adults as they are for children, blending eccentric physical comedy with themes such as loss and belonging.

If that wasn’t enough culinary chaos, the wickedly funny Signor Baffo can also be found at each party. The show is a riotously funny (and messy) slapstick kitchen drama, as the incompetent chef Signor Basso, with the assistance of some audience helpers, struggles to complete the long list of tasks his boss has left him.

Last, but definitely not least, Joli Vyann are bringing their spectacular performance Hand 2 Hand, a mixture of circus, dance, and theatre, to Shoreham and Lancing.
