Roll Up! Roll Up! Our spectacular Circus Night returns
Join us as we put on a show to showcase LGBT+ circus talent and celebrate Pride, in partnership with Circomedia.
Circomedia is a school for contemporary circus and physical theatre based in Bristol. Contemporary circus and physical theatre are at the heart of everything they do, whether it’s educating the next generation of artists, presenting innovative and challenging work at their city-centre venue or engaging with members of the public through their part-time classes and community outreach projects.
Their aim is to be the UK’s centre for contemporary circus research and production. They believe in creating transformational experiences that change the way people view and experience circus. They are dedicated to creating a limitless space where people can discover their physical, emotional and creative potential.
Prepare to be dazzled at this spellbinding fundraiser by talented and inspiring LGBT+ contemporary circus performers who dare to challenge and amuse you with their exceptional skills.
This will be a socially distanced event with seating booked in bubbles. There will be a beer garden open from 3pm until doors open at 7pm.
