KERBSIDE COLLECTIVE

We're very pleased to welcome back the spectacular fun of Kerbside Collective. Using their custom-made hills hoist apparatus, this performance piece brings out the inner child in everyone and reminds us all that's it's okay to be silly and it's okay to have a laugh.

2.30pm on Saturday, adjacent to the Porch stage.
