A whirlwind of fun will fly into town next week when Circus Funtasia rolls in.

This family event will explode with breath-taking live entertainment, featuring juggling, tight-rope walking, rollerskating, amazing acrobats, non-stop comedy and death-defying motorcycle riders.

“Our talented acrobats, Duo Stefaneli, are back with two dramatic gravity-defying performances,” said Tracy Jones, founder and ring mistress. “And we welcome Duo Peris, all the way from Spain, who will be wowing audiences with their incredible roller-skating act and aerial feats.”

Tightrope-walker Elodie, joining Circus Funtasia for her first ever performance in the UK, will walk the line of danger as she dances and hula-hoops across the wire while at just 13 years old Britain's youngest performing juggler, Nia Nikolova Jones, will keep audiences on the tip of their toes.

“I started juggling when I was seven years old, but I’ve been performing since I was three," she said. "My first act was a trampolining act with my dad, who’s an acrobat. I love being in the circus because we’re like one big family who look out for each other.”

Firing the element of danger to sky-high levels for the big finale are four motorcycle riders taking on the terrifying Globe of Death!

Weaved throughout the show are hilarious performances from French clown Anthony while an array of treats - face painting, flashing lights, popcorn, candy floss, hot food and even a bar - will keep audiences of all ages entertained from start to finish.

Catch this stunning show at Carr Road, opposite Victoria Park, Nelson, from Wednesday, March 15th to Sunday 19th March.
