An exhilarating menagerie of illuminated carnival will hit The Blackpool Tower Ballroom for an electrifying static showcase of music, puppetry and dance. Internationally recognised Carnival performers will present a showstopper over 30 minutes, bringing a diverse melting pot of carnival magic.
From giant hand-crafted puppets to stunning illuminated dancers, there will be something for all the family.
THE SPICE GIRLS! Spice up your life with our beautiful Indian elephants. Opening the show and strolling head and shoulders above the crowd, a spectacle that is guaranteed to get your feet moving. And you can leave your platform shoes at home as our Spice Girls are on stilts!
The Spice Girls combine eye-catching costumes with playful puppeteers, musicians and performers.
GHOST CARIBOU! Thingumajig Theatre’s will present their giant illuminated creatures, part caribou, part spirit, as they roam a mystical world after dark. As they gather a crowd, they clear a space to perform their other-worldly ceremony. With music, song and shadow puppets they tell stories of lost homes, impossible migrations and sees of hope before continuing the journey into their hauntingly beautiful dream-world of the night.
CARNIVAL MAGIC! A 30-piece carnival band will spring to life and fill the stage with beautiful dancers in giant illuminated dresses, accompanied by red-hot carnival drummers from Katumba and illuminated puppets Aroura and Kantaben.
THE GRAND FINALE! The show finale will crescendo with a full cast presentation of all puppets and performers, encouraging audiences to take to the dance floor and boogie to our Global Grooves with friends old and new.
