THE FESTIVAL within a FESTIVAL
Kiki and Amelia – Las Cossas Nostra
Wannabe gangsters and Italian fashion victims Mia Mine and Mr Vita invite you to enter their bizarre and absurd world as they welcome you to 'la family'. In a world filled with hairspray, fake gold and snake skin, the show appeals to audiences of all ages, as this odd couple overcomes disaster with small and satisfying triumphs. The dynamic duo burrow through a hilarous and high-
Kiki last appeared in Ashbourne as the lovable nerd Shirlee Sunflower and you’ll be pleased to know that she’s back again with her new alter ego, Kiki Bittovabitsch. One review described her as “flirtatious, outrageous, monstrous, hilarious…in short, she’s bitchin’ brilliant.” That’s what we like!
Paul’s dynamic and high-
Dynamike performs numerous tricks while riding a unicycle and will get you involved in passing him objects to juggle. His most winning performance involves him riding his tallest unicycle while juggling three knives, which often leaves the more squeamish members of the audience looking away in horror and that is guaranteed to get Ashbourne audiences very excited!

A few years ago, in Belgium, Saribibi learned how to make hats. She then decided to practise her talent at home on her kids and, after a while, she started performing at weddings and family events. Having had a great deal of success with that, she then performed at festivals and has crossed different countries with her performance, adorning people’s heads with her unique and colourful hats! Make a hat with Saribibi and wear it with pride around Streetfest.
No regular visitor to Streetfest can forget The Wardens; the only act we have again and again by popular demand. Having got a better offer last year, The Wardens are returning! Once again they have given themselves the power to enforce any rule or law they see fit -
Toni Smith – Minnie Maniac
The Hula Hoop girl from New Zealand living in Canada, Minnie Maniac (aka Toni Smith), lives an amazing life travelling the world as an adventurer and performer. Along the way, she has done some really cool things, including a high wire act between two buildings 150 feet above ground. Her show will not only wow you but with plenty of audience participation and great sense of humour you cannot fail to enjoy her effortless and impressive performance. You’ve not seen Hula Hoop like this before!
