We drag our kids round the best shows and theatre from Edinburgh Festival, so you don't have to!

Blue Planet III

Blue Planet III

We expect many of you may be missing the recent regular occurrence of settling in to watch good ol’ Grandpa Attenborough’s Blue Planet II on the Beeb every Sunday evening.

Unfortunately, David won’t be coming to Baldersby Park this year, but Deer Shed 9 will have comedians Luke Rollason and Christian Brighty exploring the deep in a dystopian future. Put on your polar ice caps and join two idiots in an adventure to repopulate the sea and save the oceans! Blue Planet III: the sea levels have risen...

Harry & Chris

Harry & Chris

Harry Baker is a World Poetry Slam Champion and wordplay wizard; Chris Read is a champion of the guitar, has a voice presumably gifted to him by higher powers and is all round champion of the people.

Together, they’re best friends Harry & Chris and will bring their unique mix of comedy, melody and poetry to Deer Shed 9. Think Flight of the Conchords with the added inclusion of Robot Wars references and you’re close to understanding how truly amazing these two are.

Just Us League

Just Us League

The Just Us League have assembled a team of people with special abilities. No, Gary Tro and Javier Jarquin don’t have super strength, and they certainly can’t fly. Weather manipulation isn’t their forte either, although that would be rather useful come festival time.

Instead, this dynamic duo possess the gift of inducing fits of laughter in any adversary; debilitating even the most straight-faced spectators with their super hero-themed stand up. They will squeeze almost a decade of Marvel movies into one action packed hour of chaotic comedy! MARVELus.

The Kagools

The Kagools

From the Mr Bean school of physical comedy, The Kagools – aka Claire Ford and Nicola Wilkinson – are a duo who propel silent entertainment and mime into the twenty-first century.

After performing their eponymous debut show in 2015, and winning multiple of awards along the way, they appeared at Deer Shed 7, winning the hearts of all in the Big Top. Their name and costumes make total sense when you hear the audience’s waves of laughter surging towards the stage.

The Kagools’ new live show, Kula, features two silent and strange, but friendly, characters. They live both in this realm (live on stage) and in an alternate reality (via an on-stage screen), which they effortlessly and inventively interact with to hilarious effect. Furiously farcical for the younger audience, with razor sharp wit to keep the grown-ups guessing.
