Canterbury Festival


Bowjangles present

On The Box!

The Festival Spiegeltent

Tuesday 20 October 2015 at 7:00 PM

Tickets: £14 (bkg fees apply*)


This multi-talented string quartet not only play their instruments superbly; they also sing, they dance, they leap, tumble, juggle and joke, leaving their audience in stitches of laughter.

On The Box! is a day in the life of a TV that’s been left switched on. These four energetic musicians parody a variety of familiar programmes, with exhilarating dance routines and rousing songs chucked in for good measure. Meet hilarious characters such as the Despairing Newsreader, the Operatic Adulterers and the Fleet Footed Strictly Contestants, accompanied by the quartet’s flawless string playing. While their cherished violins, viola and cello serve as tennis rackets, fencing swords or merely accessories to a full Charleston routine, Bowjangles keep the action roaring and the music soaring.

“The idea is impressively original and the music wonderful. The whole thing is just so stylish” (
