Hello everyone! And welcome... Here you can learn all about our live broadcasts 

which in 2020 became our primary platform for sharing live performance... We are now hopeful that 2021 will see Rimski's Yard out and about in the public, possibly at some festival favourites! We shall let you know more when we have news...  If you're new to Rimski's Yard, please read the text below for more details about what we do... And to those already familiar, we thank you for all your love, support and donations, and look forward to sharing more fun very soon. We leave you with a short film, featuring a clip of our Golden Balls Lucky Dip machine, with much love from Rimski & Handkerchief x x x 

Next Live Show :

We shall be going live from our FB page at the unusual (UK) time of 6:05pm on April 24th  

Golden Balls Lucky Dip Machine

Rimski's Yard holds a variety of different umbrellas... We have 'Rimski's Yard' the site specific venue, with Rimski & Handkerchief's Travelling Homestead at it's heart, plus a variety of mobile and static, visual and performance Art spectacles, performed & produced by Oliver Cumming & Laura Pocket... 

The most long standing and famous of these is Rimski's Bicycle Piano. Est. 2005...

Inhabiting the imaginative world of Rimski's Yard, we have Rimski & Handkerchief, the musical clown duo, who are also the house Performance Artists and primary hosts of Rimski's Yard- the venue. However, an extended colourful crew of friends, family and colleagues, form to co-create the Yards in larger spaces. For example, in Old Town, Boomtown, and more recently, the Theatre & Circus fields, Glastonbury. Here you may find the presence of The Melodrome Time Travelling Variety Stage, founded by the late Chas Ambler... Plus a whole host of other artists, performers and special guests...

The aim of Rimski's Yard is to produce magical moments and welcoming spaces, where people can temporarily step out of time and into the realm of dreaming without boundaries, and nourishing the senses- with an open heart and wonder, that is not commonly encouraged...   We believe this is much needed medicine for the modern human, and a powerful antidote to the world's current struggles. 

Specialising in street theatre, walkabout & static shows- and pop up worlds in any spaces.
