It’s been a little while since our last post. We have spent the last week in research and development for our next show – The Bureau of Extraordinance Survey. Taking in a few strolls around the North Devon villages of Shebbear and Buckland Brewer, we have some images we’d like to share with you. Sneaky peeks of things to come?

Thank you for joining us, especially the young knights, some of whom were rather new to their steeds. We are still looking for Saturday’s!
Thank you to all that joined us on Don Quixote’s adventures. Here are pictures of our lovely audiences:

Look forward to seeing you there.
Burn the Curtain have now fully assimilated back into the UK.
Sadly we only got to do one of the four scheduled shows. This was due to the weather – very high winds meant that it wasn’t practical or particularly safe When a heavy donkey tricycle needs to peddle down a steep hill, it’s usually a sign.
The one show we did do was well received, the hospitality was first class and the region had stunning scenery. Here is brief footage from our time in France:
June has arrived. Following our very enjoyable and successful week in Brighton, we are excited to announce our first venture into another country – France!
Over the weekend of 22nd and 23rd of June, Don Quixote will be riding alone the beautiful region of Cap Fréhel. This is part of a wider celebration which links South West UK and Brittany’s cycle paths.
Details of our shows, in French, is available on a new page – http://wp.me/P1so6S-bm
When we return, we will be posting details of our next English shows.
