About our Walkabout

If you've enjoyed a Vamos Theatre production, you'll love our street theatre Walkabout, where our full mask characters get out and about with the public at festivals and events.

Our Midwives on Call, with their starched aprons and sensible shoes, respond at a moment’s notice to any unexpected deliveries. Our girls, the epitome of wartime spirit, make sure the public are in tip top health, and are known to deliver a baby or two along the way! Led by the formidable Matron, they always keep calm and carry on.

You can't miss the Crimplene Crusaders: these twin-set clad campaigners keep a firm eye out for any slouching, flirting, or hand-holding, making sure that good old fashioned values are championed (although they often can't resist the temptation to 'get down' to some modern tunes.)

As for our Cheapskate Caterers, you'll be simply amazed by their incompetence! Serving drinks and canapés at events, the Cheapskate team guarantee silliness, clumsiness, inappropriate flirting, over-attentiveness, drunken and attention-seeking behaviour of all kinds. Not to be forgotten in a hurry!

And at Christmas time, there's No Room at the Premiere Inn. It's not looking good for Mary and Joseph. They’re en route to Bethlehem, the donkey’s done a runner with the sat nav, and one wrong turn later they’ve found themselves on the streets of the UK with only a map of a well-known hotel chain to show them the way. With Mary about to give birth, will the good people of Britain help them find their way? Can Joseph satisfy Mary’s cravings for prawn cocktail crisps?? And can she keep her legs crossed, or will Christmas come early this year?

All our acts are out and about throughout the year. If you're interested in booking one of our acts for your event, visit the Walkabout promoters' page for full details.

I have had such great feedback from so many residents, groups and businesses saying how much fun the Midwives on Call were!

They were absolutely fantastic!  The day went so well and they really added to atmosphere – they definitely caused a stir!
