REDDITCH’S summer street theatre kicks off at the end of July with entertainment, displays, children's activities and more in the town centre before heading to Winyates in August.

On Friday, July 26, join The Crow House for a show using an eclectic mix of circus, puppetry, musical saw, harp playing and audience participation.

One by one three very different characters arrive through the audience and try to take over the house.

A battle of wills and skills ensues with ducking and diving, wheeling and dealing and ingenious plans evolving as each person tries to gain a room inside.

Also joining The Crow House in the town centre is Professor Chandler’s Punch and Judy Show.

Following on from the performances in July, Winyates Shopping Centre will come alive with street theatre on Wednesday, August 7.

Visitors can meet Wonder Woman Diana, the International Woman of Mystery, followed by “The Fatt Matt” show, full of world-class circus skills and delivered with exquisite showmanship.

There will also be additional entertainment and activities at both events.

The events will run from 11am until 3pm.

Most activities are free but there is a small charge for face painting, bouncy castle, and craft activities.

For a complete list of dates and performances go to or take a look at the events section on the council’s Facebook page.
