PETROL HEADZ on The Piazza

Saturday, August 28

Plymouth City Centre Company have invited Barbican Theatre’s PETROL HEADZ ON TOUR show headline the West End Carnival on Saturday 28 August – featuring modified cars, parkour stunts, a live DJ & MC, hip hop, street and contemporary dance, and a few surprises along the way.

Following the day time carnival events spectators will be led to the Piazza to experience a larger version of the first Petrol Headz On The Piazza performance on 24 July, celebrating the unique voices and talents in Plymouth. Performances are scheduled for 4:30pm and 6:30pm and we anticipate they will last around 45 mins.

We’ll be bringing professional hip hop, Afro Beat, commercial and contemporary dancers together with amazing stunts from Plymouth Parkour, skateboard tricks from Prime Skatepark, with some super cool modified cars all accompanied by epic tunes from our live DJ and MC Maddy V.
