What to expect

The show will run for approximately two hours in the big top with comfortable theatre-style seating. One of the UK’s largest Covid-Secure big tops, it’s also climate controlled so you can enjoy the show in comfort. You can expect to see death-defying stunts and jaw-dropping manoeuvres performed by the talented artists, outlined below.

  • The Ayala Troupe will perform their award-winning high wire act for the first time in the UK. Most recently it was performed at the Monte Carlo Circus Festival.
  • Direct from the Emerald Isle, Shauna Moore and her partner Rafael will perform their enchanting acrobat roller skating act, combining speed, grace, and danger. Watch as they spin by their necks, hang by their toes and swing by their hair. 
  • The EXTREME® freestyle motocross team will bring jaw-dropping stunts to the Big Top. They’ll fly through the air and display cliff-hanger stunts. This act will get the adrenaline pumping as they battle for space and defy gravity with incredible mid-air backflips.
  • From Ukraine, Tetiana Kundyk will walk the slack wire. Having delivered a mind-blowing Golden Buzzer performance on the World-Famous Super Talent show, she’ll showcase her incredible balancing skills in a distinctive style.
  • World famous Henry the Prince of Clowns, a celebrated figure in the circus, will be keeping the audience amused throughout the show.
  • British legend Laura Miller will unite the elements of fire, water, and air with her internationally renowned aquatic aerial ring. Be transported into a sci-fi world watching aerial hoop skills performed with grace accompanied by visually stunning lights and music.
  • Aerial duo Polischu will perform death-defying airborne stunts – they’re one of the few acts in the world who perform these mid-air stunts. Watch as they hold each other by their teeth (yep, you read that right!) high up in the roof of the Big Top.
  • World record holding Bad Guy Juggler Tony Garcia merges his hand skills with energy and fire together with a troupe of dancers and musicians performing their acts – all with unique twists.
