Continental Shifts - Friday 21 August
Press Release: 19/08/2009
Continental Shifts will continue to bring vibrancy to city centre streets this Friday evening between 4.30pm and 8pm.
Last Friday, Grandpa’s Spells performed some Dixieland Jazz, children learned how to spin plates, and a man dressed as Wonder Woman sang some Bill Withers songs! Continental Shifts is running until 28th August, so if you’ve still got a chance to enjoy some quality entertainment at the end of the working week.
This week in The Square we head across the pond to the Americas with some Brazilian music by four piece Tempo Nova, a steel pan duo bringing a Caribbean flavour to Winchester, and magic from Alex Whitwell who will astound you with his close-up tricks.
You’ll have a chance to try your hand at juggling, diablo, unicycling and more as the Table Top circus host a drop in session for families by the City Museum. Daniel Goncalves will also be performing his Covent Garden show; winning you over with his gentle and playful clowning around. Watch out for another clown too, one with a problem staying awake – your shoulder could make an ideal pillow!
