Where outdoor arts and tented circus meet! Join the first performance of this unique experience and be part of everything that happens behind the scenes. Before the show can begin the big top must be erected, the safety of the trapeze tested, and the stage levelled to keep the unicyclist from toppling off. Witness incredible circus acts outside and inside the canvas and feel part of the shows creation. A light-hearted spectacle sure to keep you entertained.

This is a family friendly show - don't worry!
