Celebrating LGBT+ Circus with Pride
Roll up, roll up, the circus is back in town! We are excited for the return of the Pride Circus Night, a spectacular evening in partnership with Circomedia as we put on a show to celebrate, Pride, community and circus.
A spellbinding fundraiser, specially curated for Pride, showcasing incredible circus performers from around the globe. Prepare to be dazzled by thought provoking contemporary circus from talented and inspiring LGBT+ performers who dare to challenge and amuse you with their exceptional skills.
Holding your hand throughout this cabaret will be our one and only Alexa, who with her wit and dead pan comedy will help keeping you at the edge of your seat all evening.
We are offering a limited number of tables for this event as well as solo tickets
Guiding you through the spectacular acts of the evening is your compère, Alexa Gibbens! She's back for her favourite night of the year, alternating between aerial hoop and musing into a microphone in an attempt to gain your validation. Let Alexa's charm, irreverent humour and love of highly organised fun be the little gay thread that weaves between the fantastic acts we've got in store for you.
