Giant Banana in Gregson Park: CURB by Curious Legends

| |

What happens when a giant Banana Peel, Bendy Straw and Shoe meet in a park, at night, with an illuminated giant? It must be another Curious Legends production…

On Saturday 11 December, Curious Legends are bringing Gregson Park to life with another family-friendly event, and the launch of their new outdoor production, CURB. 

This event includes live music, food trucks, roving artists, chalk workshops – and of course, their trademark illuminated, giant puppets. The culmination event of the 150 Year Hamilton Celebrations, this is a free family event, and not to be missed!

“This show is all about Trash.” explains Mitchell Reese, Curious Legends Artistic Director. “We’ve taken a simple concept – throwing away a banana peel, and made it larger than life. For anyone who saw Taylor’s Run earlier this year – our Giant Peel is getting its own show!”

CURB will be held on Saturday 11 December from 5pm to 9pm in Gregson Park in Hamilton.
