Granny Turismo | Shopping Trolley Act

Meet the Worlds first and only dancing shopping trolley act. The ladies from Granny Turismo have been delighting audiences since 2009 are now one of the most talked about acts around. The show has universal appeal and is part walkabout, part circle show and wholly engaging. When these girls come ’round to perform their amazing shopping trolley act, everyone takes notice.

Doris, Marge and Mary attended the same dance class as young girls but were out of touch for many years until they met, quite by chance, on a Turkey and Tinsel weekend years ago. Fate had obviously reunited them. After deciding that there was still life after their bus passes, they formed their troupe. They meet once a week in Waitrose car park to choreograph their snazzy routines, much to the pleasure of car park users who blow their horns appreciatively! More recently, this hilarious shopping trolley act has taken on more girls!

“It’s one of the great acts. You were a total hit – as funny and outrageous as anything we’ve had in all my years.”-Stewart Collins, Director Henley Festival

“The Grannies were a huge hit – I’d recommend them in a heartbeat.”-Sam Matthews, Kidderminster Arts Festival

“Without doubt one of the most enjoyed and talked about acts.”-Out There Festival

Over the past four years this merry band have grown in numbers and there are now six grannies available with spectacular dance routines and immense impact – perfect for festivals , spectaculars and parades (we love a parade!) Granny Turismo can be booked as a 2-6 person promenade or mobile shopping trolley act. On some days we can be in two places at the same time! The are happy and safe performing in restricted or open spaces – though bigger the space, the bigger the crowd!
