The sun is shining and we are looking forward to a summer of exciting shows!
Here are a few of our highlights:
A firm local favourite, of which we are becoming veterans. Once again Cirque Bijou will be taking over Castle Park for a weekend of top quality, accessible and family friendly circus, street theatre, storytelling, fun and games. Come on down and join in the fun.
We are honoured to be bringing our unique high wire spectacle to SIRF 2017, a stunning outdoor finale show to celebrate the festival’s 30th birthday. Packed with live music, dance, colour and sparkle, the show brings together up to 100 artists including local choirs and dancers, as well as world class circus performers such as Jade Kindar Martin who will be performing on an 100ft flaming wire, his unique and record making daredevil feat!
We are back at BBC Countryfile Live for it’s second year, and once again there will be an array of the beautiful and the bonkers. Presenting 4 theatrical outdoor shows per day, aerialists will have their animal costumes at the ready, there will be plenty of farm machinery to play with, and it wouldn’t be Countryfile without a flock of sheep!
We can’t wait for Bestival this year, the Caravanserai stage has grown and is housing even more madness! We’ll be serving up circus treats during the day, as as the night draws acrobats will be flying through the air on swinging trapezes, balancing on high wires and dancing with fire. This year we are also introducing a cabaret stage sizzling with circus.
Working with the wonderful Richard Headon from Desperate Men, and a bunch of talented circus students from Circomedia, we will be creating a new daytime family circus show, which will be performed throughout the Summer holidays on the glorious SS Great Britain in Bristol.
