Ian the Juggler Marchant
Ian Marchant began juggling 20 years ago and caught the performing bug soon after that, first performing in the nightclubs of his hometown of Bedford in the UK then spreading further afield to London and beyond. Taking inspiration from the likes of Buster Keaton and Stan Laurel Ian found his "silent voice" and mixed this with the skills of the great "Gentleman Jugglers" of the early 1900's to create a unique style of his own.

Penguins Go Pop
Penguins Go Pop were popular in the late 80s and early 90s, reformed in October 2013, and have won over many new friends and fans in the last few years with their catchy, quirky songs with offbeat and amusing stories. Original members Richard Penguin (Vocals, songs and conga), Mark Wyatt (guitar and vocals), are now joined by Dave Dowdeswell-Allaway (Drums), Pete Moore (bass) and Liz Moore (Keyboards, violin and vocals) and an album is being planned for release in early 2018. They are playing a mix of Richard’s songs from the original line up and songs that he recorded as King Penguin, with new songs currently being worked on. They have also been working in the last 2 years with film maker Richard Rix who has made videos to all of the songs which are used as backdrops during their concerts. The Penguins aim to put a smile on people’s faces during austere and bleak times, and they seem to be succeeding.

Gentleman’s Walk - 17:00, 18:10, 19:20
The Thinking Men
Described as 'Gritty and Seductive bluesy rock' their live performance reverberates with infectious, foot stomping anthems that serve to woo and entice the audience. The Thinking Men have carved out somewhat of a unique sound, harking back to the swinging 60's but with a contemporary, modern feel. Their music is built upon the hooks and melodies that make songs memorable. Channelling inspiration from the likes of Tom Waits, Nick Cave, The Doors and Jack White, The Thinking Men attempt to create something entirely new and original yet with an accessible and familiar feel to complement their eccentric, unpredictable and theatrical live performances.

St Gregory’s Green - 17:10, 18:20, 19:30
