The Battling Butlers

The Battling Butlers
by Bash Street Company
6pm 26th July

It’s helter-skelter, roller coaster, death-defying, dangerous…life on the road is never straight forward for single dad, Joe Butler in this poignant, musical celebration of the ever-changing relationship between a father-and-son, street theatre double-act.

Using a unique blend of circus skills, original songs, live music and magical illusions, The Battling Butlers is also a story of the circle of life as the old performer makes way for the new. And it really is a family affair, presented by father and son, Simon Pullum and Lochlann Pickering, with original live music from Julian Gaskell.

“Funny, poignant, musical fun…brilliant Battling Butlers.”

“Thank you for a fantastic show. We all need some magic in our lives.”

“Captivating…a story told with love.”

“Excellent entertainment for all the family. Loved the music and magic, but the story was beautiful too.”

“What a great performance, absolutely fantastic! Loved the songs, the magic and the chemistry. You cannot beat a live show, and this takes some beating!”

“Best show I have seen in years and years. Lots of laughs, brilliant for nostalgia, great story. Totally fab…something for everyone”

“Thank you. You stole my heart. I loved it all and fell for every joke. Superb music too.”
