THE BOX SHOW excites the imagination of children and adults alike. We follow four characters during their daily activities in a world made of cardboard boxes and junk. The contents of an abandoned kitchen and wheelie bins become the greatest drum set in the world; Plastic bags are an amazing musical instrument and the human body becomes a unique sound machine.

Tag along for a day in the life of a bunch of musical misfits as they reinvigorate the junk that the world has forgotten.
Learn about sustainability with this high energy, imaginative music-in-education performance combining drumming, dance, theatre and comedy.

With a language of gibberish and rhythm, this show is accessible to any age and nationality. You won't look at a cardboard box the same way after watching this show!

“With more than 400 acts over 25 venues, One of the most entertaining performances, and certainly the most fun, was Junkyard Beats with four dynamic performers showing that to make music you need nothing more than everyday objects like cardboard boxes, plastic bags and cooking implements, some fancy footwork, and a whole lot of energy”

"Junkyard Beats took the floor with a high energy performance. their attention-grabbing routine paved the way for the night"
