EASTLEIGH town centre will be buzzing at an outdoor extravaganza for all the family next month.

Now in its second year, Eastleigh Unwrapped promises to be a day packed with performances for all ages including aerial theatre, circus, explosive dance and live music.

Help to build a flying machine, climb inside an enormous whale, listen to a range of talented buskers and watch a giant acrobatic wheel as it rolls down the High Street at the free event.

The day also features the acrobatic skills of headline act Square Peg with their new show Rime.

Based on Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s epic poem The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, Square Peg combine circus with theatre and dance to tell this beautiful haunting tale, which will see performers suspended above the audience’s heads in the park area next to The Point.

Other acts include a story unfolding in a circular set in The Wheel House (pictured), submarine adventures in The Whale, samba band Batala Portsmouth playing authentic Afro Brazilian Samba Reggae music, hula hoop artist Chloe Lloyd, a a French solo dance performance ending with the dancer leaving the space on the back of a motorbike and local dancers.

It takes place on June 14.
