All or Nothing presents 
The Swings 

‘Life was never better on a swing, the higher the better!’

Come and enter our world of The Swings.  We love playing and swinging about on our giant swing set and we’d love you to have a go to. Your swinging will activate a soundscape full of memories of being on a swing. Feel the rush of air past your face and be inspired by our aerialists with what you can do with a swing!  

A giant swing set, 5m high and 2 swings. 2 aerial artists use the Swings as their aerial apparatus to fly high and appear throughout the day.  They appear and disappear opening the Swings up for anyone to come and join in, to sit and swing.*

A Sound Installation activitated by your swinging and full of memories of being on a Swing. Feel the rush of air past your face, the rise and fall and the joy of swinging that we love too.

Play, watch and listen.  An interactive event for all the family.

*There is an accessible swing available but slots must be booked for this. There are 5 slots available per performance and we need to know if the booking is for an adult or child.
