Abandoned Playgrounds

The Gala Theatre


3.00pm – 4.30pm Auditorium

Come and watch a highliner and BMX rider on stage as they share their urban playgrounds doing what they do best: backflipping, barspinning and vaulting!

In 2017, Salt Street Productions took to the road with four athletes to hunt out Britain’s forgotten spaces and turn them into urban playgrounds – from a massive disused shipyard to derelict theme parks. The journey Britain’s Abandoned Playgrounds was aired on Channel 4 last year and this event is a rare opportunity to go behind-the-scenes with the athletes.

We will be joined by one of the world’s leading BMX riders Pete Catherall along with slackliner and highliner Jediah Doohan for an exciting and unique insight into urban sport and adventure. This event includes a screening of Britain’s Abandoned Playgrounds, a question and answer session with the highly skilled athletes, and an opportunity to see live stunts.

Perfect entertainment for all of the family!
