Our Picks


Street Performance - Fragile at Candleriggs Square

Fragile sees professional and emergent performers and JCB diggers working together in a breath-taking demonstration of strength and agility. Dancers and construction machinery interact in a poignant celebration of the relationship between movement and emotion. Moments of beautiful interaction between humans and machines are designed to be understood through the senses. It is a visceral, exciting experience which moves the audience through risk, daring, beauty and the unexpected. 


Tontine Lane 

Music, specialty stalls, and cultural performance will all enhance this singularly urban environment, with Turner Prize winner Douglas Gordon’s ‘Empire’ sign being just one of the iconic neon artworks located in Tontine Lane to be re-illuminated during the event.



Sun 2 Aug 1pm & 3.30pm Corner of Wilson Street and Hutcheson Street

Get ready, the world’s most bonkers circus is making its way to you.
