Bash Street Theatre Company is run by Simon Pullum and JoJo Pickering from Penzance in Cornwall.

We launched Bash Street Theatre in front of a 2,000-strong audience in the French town of Morlaix in 1991 as part of ‘Les Arts dans la Rue’ international street festival. This first show, a compilation of sketches involving circus skills, live music and silent comedy, proved so popular that it created a style for the company that still exists today. Our aim is to develop street theatre that is accessible to all ages, cultures and backgrounds.
For more than 25 years we have been delighting audiences, both young and old, with our unique style of circus-theatre at major festivals throughout the UK, and in 17 other European countries as well as Macau, Hong Kong, South Korea, Egypt and Israel. Our silent movie show CLIFFHANGER! was awarded the ‘Best Street Show’ prize at the Fira de Teatre in Tarrega, Spain.
