HALF-TERM FAMILY EVENTS

Circus City has some real treats in store for families this mid-term, perfect for fun-filled Autumnal days off school.

AROUND (25-28 OCT, CIRCOMEDIA)

Around is a fun, tender show about the life of a circus troupe as they overcome hardship through collaboration and cooperation.

A drum machine roars, buckets are banged and the vivid sound of an acoustic guitar joins the buzzing of a baritone ukulele in an ‘80s inspired soundtrack created specially for performance.

Featuring a monkey suit and a massive banana, this playful performance mixes circus skills old and new: juggling, acrobatics, hula hooping, mime, clownery, blowing bubbles and breakdancing!

“Gentle, engaging and delightful throughout, Around is perfectly-pitched children’s theatre.” – The Reviews Hub

11:00 and 14:00 (25-28 Oct). Relaxed performance: 14:00 (26 Oct). Tickets £9/£32 (family deal)/ Children under 2 go free! 

SQUEEZY GREEN’S COMPENDIUM OF GAMES (22 + 29 OCT, WARDROBE THEATRE)

Squeezy Green's Compendium of Games

Wardrobe Theatre regulars, Squeezy Green and Finney Haddock present this unique two-show special of circus themed games, so come test your skills, take a chance and enjoy being ridiculous.

The hosts will take you through a series of games and challenges. Play from the safety of your seat or take the opportunity to go head to head against another challenger. Squeezy has run plenty of game shows before but now they are throwing circus skills into the mix, so prepare for the unexpected!

This will be a somersaulting big top of an afternoon, with games you wouldn’t necessarily be allowed to play at home. So roll up, roll up: thrills, spills and more fun than you could pack into a popcorn stand.

15:00 on 22 and 29 Oct. Tickets £8/£6/Children under 3 go free! 

MARVELLOUS (27 + 28 OCT, ALL HALLOWS HALL)

Invisible Youth

Invisible Youth invite you to experience a social circus performance, group-devised over five afternoons by the young people from Felix Road Adventure Playground in Easton, assisted by professional circus practitioners from Invisible Youth.

Social circus is a catalyst for change, that uses positive role models to engage at-risk youth and empower them with life skills such as self-esteem, daring, teamwork and perseverance.

As an audience member, you will participate in a promenade performance in a historic venue, off the beaten track. You will witness the community cohesion generated via creative projects and the importance of play and the Arts in the lives of young people, who will be showcasing Easton as a hotbed of authentic talent.

17:30 (27 Oct) and 13:00 (28 Oct). Suggested donation £8. Under 12s go free!
