“Welcome to the Clik Clik Asparalympics”

Back for a second year Olympic games with a twist, this is an interactive asparagus tournament for all ages, to reveal the champions of the Asparafest 2017!

Think the ‘Olympics’ crossed with an ‘It’s a Knockout’ School sports day; this madcap audience-friendly performance will see a range of games, such as Aspara-relay, 10 meter ‘gus and spoon’ race, asparagus throw and more, in a playful performance for the public to get involved.

Clik Clik Asparalympics comes with performers and a compere to cheer and boo those competitors, a podium style awards and photo booth to snap those winners and losers!

This will also include a hand painted Clik Clik asparagus themed Character Board for the public to have some ‘face-in-hole’ fun with during the day.

Laughter guaranteed, this is crazy family fun for all ages!
