Description

'A great little Fringe experience that I can highly recommend' (Scotsman). This unique show premiered in 2019 to delighted audiences. Now the eccentric street sweeper is making a new show out of rubbish and bringing something unassumingly wonderful back to the Fringe. Character comedy and clowning with puppetry, and object theatre in a humorous and thought-provoking show around the streets of the festival city. Join Lucky (Wallace and Gromit voice actor Ben Whitehead) and rediscover the spirit of the festival. 'Lucky is a delightful person to spend an hour with' (Scotsman).

Can a show become a cult in just 5 days? If there's justice in the world, Festival in the Bin should. It might not be the best show that we saw at The Fringe but it is probably the best "Fringe" show. A mix of gadget and objet trouvé led clowning and a pastiche of walking tour that actually takes you to a couple of interesting spots (one we didn't know existed and one we've passed many times and haven't noticed). Expect to participate. In a group you can perhaps get away without doing so but it works better for everyone if you do. Nothing weird or embarrassing but great fun. 5 shows. 2 down today (18th) so only 3 more chances to get involved in something that could give you cherished memories for years. You'll be talking about it long after you've forgotten lots of excellent shows that you saw.
