2024 Festival Dates: 6 & 7 July


Throwing together an amateur tinkerer, a steam engine enthusiast, a game of Mousetrap and the Englishman’s obsession with a tea break and what do you get? ‘The Works.’


The Works is a chain reaction of a show for all the family. Meet two workmen; earnest companions, overalls, invention, a pet cat, ramshackle engineering, cups of tea, deadpan comedy and a catapult of faith – they’re making a garden shed-like contraption; prepare yourself for a cat flinging, wild finale!
