We love our street performers and we know you do too! They bring us round the clock entertainment and laughter with small doses of terror being the only price to pay as their shows are completely FREE! These guys gotta eat though, so don't forget to donate whatever you feel is necessary for these amazing performers to keep on spreading their talents all over the world and back again with us next year. All you have to do is sit back, enjoy and make your way to the bucket after the show: simples!

Learn It Workshops are designed to inspire and develop the skills of tomorrow’s engineers. Our workshops are engaging, fun and most of all educational with children taking time to discuss, plan, design and develop their projects. Their imaginations will run wild, with enough LEGO at each camp to create 10+ft tall skyscrapers, real LEGO chairs strong enough for children to sit on and much more.

Doktor Kaboom, like many of our performers, is a man of many talents. From biomedical scientist, to firefighter, to actor, Doktor Kaboom can amaze and astound the young, the old and everyone in between! His blend of science and theatre create a thrilling comedic act, two of which will never be the same due to his whacky improvisational skills. Doktor Kaboom believes every child is intelligent, creative and valuable and so do we so join us at the ESB ‘Spark Your Imagination’ area and prepared to be amazed and astounded!

        9. Petting Farm Kid's Court
