FEIP - Free Entertainment In Parks Melbourne.

For many years Bob Crawford was the driving force in delivering free productions in Melbourne.

With his travelling amphitheatre and thousands of entertainers, costume designers and vastly diverse content for all generations, he entertained the city of Melbourne over many years without one recorded mishap. All participants were well behaved and of a good nature to take part in these community events.
