Try your hand at flying! EVERYBODY DANCE invites you to come and have a go on their spectacular aerial dance rig. Using climbing harnesses and equipment we work low to the ground or a little higher if you want to. You can swing, glide, spin, and move in gravity-defying ways. We welcome all ages and abilities, in our 25 years of experience, everyone who has wanted to fly with us has been able to do so.

Join in with Kyiv the amazing lion puppet designed and made by Fetch Theatre with extra help from students at Earl Mortimer College as he makes his way from the Priory Church across the Grange and off to tea at the Leominster Museum’s 10th birthday party. There will be plenty of time to admire his beautiful mane as he regally makes his presence known with a ROAR! If children (or grown-up’s) have made masks – do wear them or flutter a flag as Kyiv passes by and give him your best Leominster roar too.
