FUNBOX are hitting the trail again with their new tour The Wild West Show. Dig out your ten gallon hats and join the gang for a singalong hoedown for all the family.

Don’t forget to get dressed up for the shows, parents included. If you’ve ever dreamed of being a cowboy, cowgirl, friendly alien or an astronaut – now’s your chance.
