Saturday’s Main Arena Acts:

  • Battling Cumberland Giants: Join us for the world's biggest comedy attraction - the ever-popular Battling Cumberland Giants! Prepare to be wowed as you watch the giant wrestlers "Mighty Mick", the peoples favourite, take on the nasty one "Terrible Ted" who do battle in this fast-moving, action-packed comedy wrestling show.
  • H & M Dog Display Team: Formed in 1984, H & M Dog Display Team has become one of the most popular teams in the country. Their performance is fast-paced, original, incredibly entertaining and includes dogs of all breeds some of which are rescue dogs. They have performed at hundreds of shows and have made several television appearances. Their biggest accolade was being invited by the Kennel Club to perform at the world famous Crufts Dog Show, not once, but five times!
  • Phoenix Falconry: Back by popular demand Rotherham based Phoenix Falconry bring their amazing show. Many breathtaking birds, including falcons, buzzard hawks and owls will be on display and flying free. Show-goers will also be invited to get up-close-and-personal with these kings of the sky during the amazing show.

Sunday’s Main Arena Acts:

  • Dingle Fingle: Hear explosions, witness high speed crosses, precision driving and sideways drifts galore as our two world class clowns engage in this Slapstick Stunt Show for all the family! With plenty of audience participation the two madcap stunt clowns will have you laughing all the way through their performance.
  • Galloping Acrobatics: From the minute Galloping Acrobatics enter the arena you will be mesmerised by the remarkable feats of gymnastic, acrobatic and equestrian skill on display. Gaze in awe as Tinker thunders past with Rosie standing on his back. Laugh as Casper catches things in his mouth before admiring his high stepping Spanish walk. Watch in amazement as Tinker skips around the arena with a giant five metre skipping rope. Tell a joke to Casper – will he laugh or shake his head in shame? The incredible level of communication between Rosie and her horses will have you enthralled from start to finish! 
  • Nottinghamshire Police Pipe Band: Formed in 1994, and celebrating 20 years this year, we are very happy to welcome back Nottinghamshire Police Pipe Band to Rotherham. Whilst bearing the name and informal support of the Nottinghamshire Police, and the support of the Chief Constable in particular, the Pipe Band is actually composed mainly of civilians and is largely independent of the Police Authority. The band motto 'amicitia aeterna' was adopted which, freely translated, means 'everlasting friendship'.
