Bongo Fury


World-class percussion whizz kids Owen and Olly, twice-voted best music act at the Edinburgh Fringe, were most definitely up for a laugh with their new found friends in New Galloway - they loved inviting volunteers up to the stage to help them make some noise on the instruments!

Thanks to all who came and joined in! See below for some feedback from the audience - their favourite bits!


  • Presented by Owen Gunnell and Oliver Cox


Plenty of audience participation!
