Hogswallops will be wowing theatre goers for the next three nights at the tent in Chaplefield Garden as part of the city’s Interlude programme.

Ahead of performances, the troupe enjoy recreating a spectacular scene from the show in front of a historic location in the fine city.

Massimiliano Rossetti, Lost in Translation founder and artistic director, said: “We have been performing The Hogwallops all around the world and wherever we go we recreate this scene that for me encapsulates the main ingredients of the show - a mix of acrobatics, spectacle and lots of fun. After Westminster, Edinburgh, Adelaide and Bermuda, it feels like coming home to finally recreate it in Norwich against one the city’s most iconic landmarks.”
