A herd of street furniture with feelings cause hilarity and surprise in Mansfield – this must mean the Bureau of Silly Ideas are in town!

Some are rebellious, some are disco-bopping, and some are just blooming lovely; look out for anything out of the ordinary. Be nice to your streets, otherwise mayhem will ensue – remember, rubbish bins have feelings too.

*These are walkabout acts and will start at the start points specified above, moving on through the streets. You can meet them at the start and move along with them or come across them as they make their way through the town.
