Looping the Loop and Nearly Normal’s infamous Dog Agility Team will be performing a series of fun 20-minute doorstep theatre shows, on Sunday 20th September, for selected households living along Athelstan Road, closing with an open-air performance to the public at 5pm, inside Dalby Square Gardens.

Supported by Kent County Council’s Margate representative, Councillor Barry Lewis, it will highlight new 20 mph speed restrictions coming into place on Athelstan Road and a number of other locations in Margate and Cliftonville.

The hilarious piece of street theatre features unpredictable puppet dogs Mabelle, Marjorie, Gladys and their trainers and is performed “contactless” at a safe distance to meet Covid-19 safety measures.


Barry Lewis: “Let’s have a fun day on Sunday to celebrate safer roads for children on Athelstan Road and Cliftonville”

Audience members need to attend in groups of no more than six people, from the same household or support bubble. The event organisers will allocate appropriate seating/standing areas so that social distancing can be maintained at all times.


The shows are part of a series of performances delivered by Looping the Loop called the "Unexpected Performance Service."

During lockdown, Looping the Loop Director, Ellie Jones, and her husband, Steve Jones of Nearly Normal Theatre Company performed as the Dog Agility Team on front doorsteps across Thanet with their 10-year old son, Sam.
