The Festival brings a fantastic mixture of the best in international inclusive and disability arts. This year we have: crazy circus, roaming theatre, dancers and musicians, walkabout Shakespeare, spooky late-night cabaret, a tequila infused homage to Frida Kahlo and a two-foot tall mouthy puppet called Fred.
