Big Rory and Ochie the Dog are no ordinary street theatre characters; a giant Scotsman and his endearing giant dog explode onto an audience. 

Visually enormous, their characters are huge too. People (and often dogs) fall in love with Ochie. They look adoringly into his eyes, they can’t help cuddling him, but he’s a rascal too, full of surprises.  There is often total confusion as Ochie the amorous mutt careers around, with Rory in hot pursuit, trying to contain the chaos.  

If you expect a quiet time from this pair, don’t book them!

‘…Whether at the street carnival or at the festival they really won such incredible praise. I think it fair to say I might be on the point of falling in love with Ochie, he is adorable…and very naughty’
