“Streets of” events close at Bexhill


The final event in the “Streets of” calendar took place in Bexhill last weekend.

The annual free street theatre festival event brought hilarity and stunts to hundreds of bystanders last Saturday, delighting crowds on Devonshire Square.

Previous events have taken place in Battle and Rye.

Dende’s fabulous drummers kicked off this year’s event delighting audiences with their rhythmic beats. The event brought an extravagant performance by roller-skating duo Dulce Duca and Stormskater, who took to the streets of Bexhill with their juggling antics and stunts.

Safety Catch Theatre’s fascinating talking ex-NHS ambulance BESSIE was a hit with younger members of the public and the awe-inspiring Strong Lady wowed audiences with her combination of elegance, skillful comedy and thought-provoking storytelling.

Local talent was on display with an enchanting street theatre piece by young people from Hastings and Bexhill Mencap mentored by Inside Out Theatre Company, while “Streets Of” favourite, stilt walker Dolly Delicious was out and about greeting passers-by.

“It’s been great to have such fantastic artists entertaining audiences in Bexhill,” says Mandy Curtis of 18 Hours, the local production company that has been producing the festival.

The festival is supported by Rother District Council and the Arts Council.
