Time Travelling in East Park
The Big Malarkey Festival 2018
When we heard that Hull’s East Park was playing host to an outdoor family festival celebrating stories, we know we wanted to be involved. At our first meeting with director Ellen Bianchini, we discussed how we might provide a promenade piece of theatre at the Big Malarkey Festival which highlighted the famous stories associated with the park itself?
What We Did
Our approach was to create a secret mission – audiences would be hijacked by a time-travelling professor at the festival and then taken out of a secret entrance into the park itself for the adventure. Meeting golfers, ex-servicemen and even a rock guitarist – audiences would consider what made the park special, and protect it from the evil Future Planner!
We successfully delivered the event at the festival in June – providing a slice of surprise for audiences and park-goers alike!
“I have to say we have had some fantastic feedback so far and I was over the moon when we sold out of the tickets by Thursday morning. We had to turn quite a few people away for Halloween itself – but a good problem to have!”
