Buck a Brenda
Part of Greenwich Fair
22 - 23 June
Duration: 45 minutes
At Greenwich Fair on Sunday 23 June? Please note that Buck a Brenda is now at location 6 on the GDIF brochure map.
Experience a vintage game with a disability politics twist in this uproarious reinvention of ‘Buckaroo’. With a wardrobe of double denim outfits and hosted on cowboy-themed mobility scooters by Beryl and Cyril (Bingo Lingo, GDIF 2017), Buck A Brenda is set to become the summer’s hottest new game.
Buck a Brenda will be performed as part of Greenwich Fair, GDIF’s two-day “festival within a festival” from 21-23 June, bringing together UK and international street arts companies to Greenwich Town Centre in a fun-filled, family-friendly extravaganza.
There is step-free access to the performance location. There are sections of lawn at the Old Royal Naval College that have a slight curb. Ramps will be in place and, in the event of wet-weather, we will install Trakway wherever possible..
This area will be marked with a flag or sign and will have limited seating – please ask a GDIF Volunteer if you’re not sure where to go.
Where to find it
Buck a Brenda will be performed in Monument Gardens, Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich, SE10 9HF.
