On The Box!

Bowjangles chronicle a day in the life of a TV that's been left switched on.

Bowjangles are a string quartet who sing, dance, leap, tumble, juggle and joke – while playing their instruments.

The four energetic musicians parody a variety of familiar TV programmes, with exhilarating dance routines and rousing songs thrown in for good measure.

Meet 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 violins, viola and cello serve as tennis rackets, fencing swords or accessories to a full Charleston routine, Bowjangles keep the action roaring and the music soaring.


'You'd never have imagined that anyone could incorporate classical music and modern comedy quite so brilliantly.'(Performance Reviewed)

'With the dancing, singing and fast pace… it is easy to forget that they are playing all the music, all the time, without missing a beat' (Wiltshire Gazette and Herald)

'An extraordinary night... Every element of the show was executed brilliantly and passionately… A joy to watch.'(Views from the Gods)
