Dick and Dom going head to head in hilarious half-term show at Eden
Tuesday, May 28, 2019 - 10:00
Top TV duo Dick and Dom have kicked off their half-term residency at the Eden Project in typically madcap fashion with their fantastically fun show, Dick V Dom.
The multi-BAFTA winning pair are playing their family-friendly show on the main stage at Eden to enthralled crowds in front of the world-famous Biomes.
The show, a live 45-minute adaptation of Dick and Dom in da Bungalow, continues to play live every day until Saturday (June 1).
Happening on stage at 3pm, Dick V Dom is the culmination of a packed day of activities, dares and family pranks for visitors.
Upon arriving at Eden, families are assigned to different teams and represent Dick and Dom throughout the day.
They can then follow the Team Challenge Trail which leads to eight dares and challenges across the site.
Hands-on, interactive games include Junk in your Trunk and Gloves On! Families can also tackle an obstacle relay course. In the Rainforest Biome there is an opportunity to gain points by competing against an Eden team member in a quick-fire quiz.
During the show, the audience is split in half and the two sides battle it out with games, songs and general hilarity. Some even take to the stage alongside the presenters to compete for their respective teams.
There is also storytelling in the Mediterranean Biome and science workshops in The Core education centre taking place at various times of the day.
Emma Evans, Eden’s marketing director, said: “We are absolutely delighted with the response to Dick and Dom, and the rapturous welcome they have received from our visitors so far.
“Their shows are proving to be hilariously entertaining and incredibly exciting for everyone watching. We’re sure many more families will enjoy plenty of fun and games with us in the remainder of the week.”
Dick and Dom – alias Richard McCourt and Dominic Wood - shot to fame as Children’s BBC presenters in the 1990s and then moved on to the award-winning Dick and Dom in da Bungalow, which ran for five highly-acclaimed series.
• The Eden Project is closing its doors for one day on Sunday June 2 to encourage people to join in and support The Big Lunch.
