Last night’s performance of Proto-type Theatre’s A Machine They’re Secretly Building marked the 600th show in the festival’s 16-year history. That’s 600 individual shows, not performances and doesn’t include the many free bands that have performed after the day’s events.
It’s an impressive feat, but who has taken the other milestone slots in the festival’s history? We’ve dug into the archive to find out…
1st Show – Suffolk Youth Theatre – Jungle Book
100th – Romany Theatre Company – Our Big Land
200th – Random Dance – Random Frequencies
300th – Shams – Reykjavik
400th – Sam Halmarack and the Miserablites
500th – J. Fergus Evans – My Heart Is Hitchhiking Down Peachtree Street
600th – Proto- type Theatre – A Machine They’re Secretly Building
Who will claim the 700th show title? Or the 100th show? At the average rate of Pulse shows per year, we should find out the 100th show sometime in 2024!
