About the show

It would be a tragedy if some thoughtless people ruined it for everyone by running, jumping, or doing gymnastics…

Perched on their high chairs the lifeguards attempt to keep thte fun strictly under control, and anyone caught petting can expect to be severely admonished.

Only sensible lane swimming and synchronised strolling is permitted by our ‘Speedo clad warriors’.


They also lead the public in a a strict stretching and lunging programme in their mission to keep the fun out of sport.

Thank you so much for all your fabulous work. Your lifeguards were fantastic. We really enjoyed having you there and loved your act. - Emily, The Bijou Team EDF Harbour Festival

Yeah, but what really happens?

We set the ladders up either side of a busy walkway and interact with passers by from the ladders and on the ground. We use a sampler with comic sound effects.

We can also perform a mobile version on foot with no ladders for busy indoor venues. We have even performed on ice skates at winter wonderland events!

This is an original piece of street theatre that can animate a large area from any suitable vantage point. We classify it as a ‘static walkabout’.

Ideal for public spaces, festivals and conferences where people are on the move.
