The Box Show

The Box Show excites the imagination of children and adults alike

In the hands of Junkyard Beats, ordinary household items are transformed into extraordinary musical instruments and unwanted junk comes alive in exciting and surprising ways! 

Follow four characters during their daily activities in a world made of cardboard boxes and junk. The contents of an abandoned kitchen and wheelie bins become the greatest drum set in the world; plastic bags are an amazing musical instrument and the human body becomes a unique sound machine.

Tag along for a day in the life of a bunch of musical misfits as they reinvigorate the junk that the world has forgotten.

Learn about sustainability with this high energy, imaginative and interactive performance combining drumming, dance, theatre and comedy. With a language of gibberish and rhythm, this show is accessible to any age and nationality.

See the show, then join the team from Junkyard Beats for their award-winning workshop to learn basic body percussion skills and how to turn recycled materials such as buckets, PVC pipes, broomsticks, plastic bins and drums into musical instruments, so you can create your own Junkyard Orchestra. Limited places available – Book early to avoid the disappointment of missing out!
