All of your favourite acts will still be in the line up accompanied by some awesome musicians. Covent Garden’s Felicity Footloose will wow audiences as she juggles knives upside down, dances and performs daredevil acrobatics to an 80’s sound track.

Matt Pangs Fantabulous Contraption Show and the amazing slack rope artist Kwabana will be showcasing some of the best street performance Devon has ever seen.

Amazing Gracie - The Thunder From Down Under, Hula Hoop performance artist from Australia, will skilfully spin and manipulate hoops before bringing the whole stunt to a finale.

And if that hasn't amazed you enough, fresh from his 30th year at the Edinburgh Fringe, The Mighty Gareth, is sure to get jaws dropping as he performs his ever so slightly scary juggling act - with chainsaws. Also, fresh from the fringe is The Mighty Quinn who will be juggling knives on a unicycle amongst other daredevil skills!
