Circus Mundi

To celebrate the 250th anniversary of Circus, NoFit State brings together their most promising young circus talent to perform a new piece, specially devised for Herefordshire’s Family Festival.

In 2018 the Herefordshire Family Festival celebrated 250 years of Circus, so The Courtyard Hereford teamed up with NoFit State and their Youth Circus, to create a brand new, specially commissioned piece to be performed in their Main House!

Exploring the past, celebrating the present, shaping the future.

NoFit State brought together their most promising young circus talent to perform a new piece, specially devised for Herefordshire’s Family Festival. The show is inspired by extensive research into the circus heritage. Audiences were dazzled by aerial artistry, acrobatics and juggling and so much more in the most ambitious Youth Circus performance to date! Building on the success of the youth troupe's previous production Circus:250 Years Young. 

Look out for further developments and performances of Circus Mundi in the new year, show footage coming soon!
