Bowjangles: Excalibow Theatre & Performing Arts


Bowjangles are a string quartet who can really play- They sing, dance, leap, tumble, juggle and joke while they play!

“An excellent, entertaining hour of multitasking music and mythology – a perfect show” ★★★★★ Voice Mag

In this critically-acclaimed show marking their 10-year anniversary, Bowjangles tell the somewhat ludicrous story of their journey to find the most priceless relic of all – a mysterious violin bow known as Excalibow. Filled with unforgettable characters, fantastic reinterpretations of classic songs and an ingenious portal to another dimension, this is not a show to be missed. You’ll love Bowjangles’ inimitable and unique style, full of laughs, boundless energy, and almost every musical genre you can imagine.

WARNING: May contain traces of ABBA.

WINNER – Mervyn Stutter’s Pick of The Fringe Award 2018

If you like music, song, dance and comedy, then Bowjangles are for you. This multitalented four-piece not only play their instruments superbly, they leave their audience in stitches of laughter – and incredulous. Bowjangles use every style and genre of music you can imagine in energetic and hilarious stage shows which takes string quartet performance to a whole new dimension, and brings old style Music Hall Vaudeville into the 21st century.

“The show is a whimsical and hilarious adventure through music and there’s plenty to delight.” ★★★★★ Broadway Baby

“Every element of this fast-paced, one-hour show is performed to an exceptionally high standard…. Excalibow is an hour of joyous Fringe fun, underpinned by admiration and amazement at the creativity displayed by this hugely talented cast” ★★★★★ Fringe Review

“Funny… genius… utterly inspired” Dillie Keane

“Pure gold” ★★★★★ London Metro

“A good string quartet is one thing, but a good string quartet that can play at the same time as managing high energy choreography, singing in harmony, and spinning a yarn is quite unique…their family-friendly show is a unique experience not to be missed” ★★★★ Ed Fest Mag
