Visitors to Stockton High Street were entertained by well-known theatre company Circo Rum Ba Ba on Saturday (10 December).

The group performed as Light Gliders as part of Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council’s winter festival, Stockton Sparkles.

The Light Gliders are small, speedy, imp-like characters and delighted the crowds by chasing unsuspecting members of the audience.

Councillor Norma Wilburn, Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council’s Cabinet Member for Arts, Leisure and Culture, said: “This was another superb street theatre event put on as part of the wonderful Stockton Sparkles programme.

“The cheeky and unpredictable Light Gliders were simply brilliant and really engaged with the audience. This made it great viewing for people of all ages.

“I hope everybody in Stockton Borough enjoyed this year’s Stockton Sparkles street and theatre and other events as much as I did.”
