SURGE: The Menagerie

SURGE: The Menagerie

Keep your eyes peeled; the streets may not be what they seem! The Bureau Of Silly Ideas is out and about with their street furniture menagerie. If you spot them make sure to be nice to them or mayhem could ensue. Always remember, street furniture has feelings too!


Scotland’s leading developer of street arts, Surge, presents a superb line up of weird and wonderful street theatre acts, unleashed on the public throughout the Merchant City Festival 

SURGE runs projects to develop street arts, physical theatre and circus in Scotland. We work with artists, performance companies and educators at all levels of experience.  

This year’s annual SURGE festival brings new Scottish work and cutting edge international performances to the streets of Glasgow, bringing them to life in ways never seen before.
