Due to an increasingly busy summer touring schedule, we shall have to wait a while yet, before the next  Saturday Live at 5:05    

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.
