“A joyous celebration of music, light, costume, colour and the remarkable capability of the human form. A highlight of the show was undoubtedly the FMX motorbikes soaring and backflipping through the big top which left the jaws of my three, at times unimpressible, children agape.” Gemma Easton, Kiddo Mag

“Had a great time with my 3-year-old son. His first time to the circus and he was amazed by the acts – especially the motorbikes!” Helen Smith
