The Cockney Awkestra

'Ave a banana! Get off me barra! Come on my son alright...Oi!

The Cockney Awkestra is a musical comedy street theatre show featuring live music, singing, dancing, clowning and load of audience participation.

The show tells the story of three members of staff from Bow Center for Cockney Excellence and their efforts to revive the dying arts of Knees Ups, Ding Dongs and Coconut Shys across the nation.

With the whole audience as their students they'll guide you effortlessly through their carefully crafted syllabus.

During the summer of 2009 the Awkestra toured England and Ireland performing everywhere from the muddy fields of Glastonbury Festival to the National Theatre's street theatre season. They're back in 2010 and are available for festivals, street theatre events and cabarets near you!
