    Peddlers Pack

Jessica Rost & Co

These five engaging hucksters will be hawking the fringes and byways of Milton Keynes this summer: conducting their commerce, making connections, interactions and unforgettable transactions; the like of which you could not ever have imagined possible. Come and find them before they find you!

Traditionally Peddlers were people who travelled about the countryside selling wares or services. They were often immigrants, outcasts or people on the margins of society. They would offer novelty items, handmade produce or mending and repair services, often to people who were inaccessible or not able to travel into villages and towns easily.

‘Peddlers Pack: so many things you never saw before’ is a perambulating outdoor show devised by Jessica Rost and being presented as part of MK Festival Fringe. It involves five characters, each with something extraordinary to offer and incorporates five specially created soundscapes by sound artist Stuart Moore. Although these peddlers are very much of present day and place, they will have a definite other worldliness about them.

You’ll find them travelling about the Redways, carrying their wares on bicycles and barrows on 17th, 18th and 19th July.
