The Big Splash: 2 Rude
Big Splash 2013 will return on the weekend of Friday 31 May until Sunday 2 June 2013 and will contain live music, circus, street theatre, dance, comedy and lots of family friendly entertainment including a Sunset Spectacular.
The weekend of fun, spectacle and entertainment follows on from the success of the last three years and will see Newport being taken over by a host of indoor and outdoor events along the riverbanks of the River Usk and at The Riverfront, Newport Centre and Rodney Parade.
The highlight of the weekend will be the Sunset Spectacular in the Ultimate Usk zone on the banks of the River Usk. The Riverfront, Citrus Arts and Alchemy Fireworks will combine forces to treat the public with a stunning acrobatic and pyrotechnic display including a ‘Wheel of Death’ at the Red Wave Sculpture.
Urban Edge will be based in and around the Newport Centre and will be a zone focused on urban arts and activities for teenagers. Young people will be able to join in on and watch amazing skateboard and scooter tricks, a dance competition STOMP and free break dancing workshops.
Throughout the weekend there will be a wide selection of international wondrous and comic street performers in one of the best Street Theatre Festivals in Wales.
