Roll up, Roll Up for our very first circus extravaganza!

A joyous event with brilliant circus artists and a few curiosities to boot. The afternoon will feel like a mini festival, everyone (over 18months) needs a ticket which will give you entry to all the events including; Showoffs Circus School with workshops in all sorts of circus skills from juggling to flower sticks, Hands Down Circus’ performances of ‘Tape That’ a charming, light-hearted, non-verbal acrobatic duet and you can meet the animals at The Puppet Petting Farm.

Showoffs Circus School
Experience the wonder and excitement of the circus brought to life with circus skills workshops taking place throughout the afternoon.

The Puppet Petting Farm
HandMade Theatre
A brand new interactive puppet show filled with fun animal characters and original live music.

Tape That
Hands Down Circus
Two performers construct a visual world using colourful tape, object manipulation and partner acrobatics. A simple roll of tape transforms from DJ decks to a spyglass and is stretched to create physical barriers and obstacles for the performers to navigate. Tape That is a playful exploration of the world we live in; when challenges present themselves, just how many problems can be fixed with a few rolls of duct tape?

Suitable for the whole family to enjoy. Bring your diablo (or other circus equipment) if you would like to go free-style!

All tickets, Including workshop £20
Joint Castle entry and circus ticket Adult £28
Child £23
Parking ticket £3

The Castle is open 11am-4.15pm so please visit before the event if you are planning to. You are welcome to picnic on the castle lawn and the tea room will be open with take away options
