Epic Fail is great success in Gladstone Street


Pupils had spent a month preparing for three performances with help from acclaimed theatre maker and musician, Kid Carpet, on his new show Epic Fail.  

Epic Fail celebrates the joys and discoveries of useless inventions and unexpected discoveries, and how they are part of everyday life. 

Epic Fail is part of a national project by the Moving Roots network, and will tour to Cardiff, Stoke and Wigan, but it is making its first showing in Peterborough, and is co-produced by local company, Jumped Up Theatre.

Kate Hall, Jumped Up’s Producer, said: “We have had great success with Kid Carpet shows in our Platform 8 Theatre Festivals.

 “So we were really pleased to have the opportunity for 90 Gladstone students to have had workshops with him, and have 30 students will be onstage with Kid Carpet, performing to their parents, friends and family.”

Peterborough Matters - having taken part in a journalism workshop in the run-up to the performances - attended the third show of the day on Thursday alongside a seven-year-old, who enjoyed it thoroughly!
