High time at SIRF
A bumper birthday programme made sure there was never a dull moment at Stockton Riverside Festival (SIRF) this year.
Celebrating its 30th birthday, SIRF offered more than 100 acts and workshops over a four-day stint.
The festival kicked off on Thursday with Frameshift, a co-production between Australian and Korean performance groups.
The aerial show had plenty of dance and a spot of digital interactive technology too.
High ropes, circus skills and other pop-up performances were on the bill for Friday.
And more daring stunts took place on the evening against the backdrop of a dark sky.
A parade and birthday party took pride of place on Saturday afternoon.
The procession - entitled FIZZ, BANG, POP! - featured a stream of groups from around the area.
It was followed by a 30th birthday celebration at Stockton’s Riverside.
Sunday’s finale was the icing on the festival’s birthday cake.
A Fire Wire Spectacle captured the crowd’s imagination high above Stockton’s Trinity Green.
