The iconic Greenwich Circus Festival is back and it’s going to be even more spectacular this year to round off a year long celebration of 250 years of circus in the UK.
Founded in 2011, Greenwich Circus Festival is the capital’s annual festival of contemporary circus taking place at London’s oldest and leading independent circus school, AirCraft Circus Academy.
This year the festival will deliver a variety of circus workshops for adults and children, live music and a wide range of contemporary circus shows (5 shows every day) including two major circus productions of 2018:
- ‘The Greatest Circus Show’ inspired by the the iconic movie ‘The Greatest Showman’. created and staged by Lucy Francis, AirCraft Circus Academy Director and Choreographer, to mark the 250th anniversary of circus in the UK. You’ve all seen the hit movie ‘The Greatest Showman’, now you will have a chance to see the real circus show.
- ’Submersion’ a circus collaboration with a stuntman created for Totally Thames Festival 2018. Circus acts will set the stage for the stuntman who will be lowered upside down in a tank of water, shackled and padlocked and has just a nail file to pick the locks and to free himself.
The Festival is split into two parts, a separate ticket is needed for each part of the day:
- A Day Programme includes circus workshops for adults and children, face-painting, games and multiple circus shows to suit all ages including a headline act of ‘Submersion’
- An Evening Programme presents two professional circus shows including the headline production ‘The Greatest Circus Show’ and a live band to finish the night with a party.
