Join us on an exciting journey as we take you on a journey of the discovery of flight and all the way back to Wakefield in 1827, as the crowds gather to witness the daring hot air balloon mission of the mysterious Brown Brothers!

An interactive family friendly show using words, puppetry, and physical theatre, in a celebration of hope and dreaming the impossible!


Up and Away keeps those present captivated and entertained throughout,

they perform with high energy and interact fantastically with their audience,

they look like they are having as much fun as they are. Quite simply Brilliant!’
