Ladies and gentlemen… Boys and girls… Roll up! Roll up!
Tumble down to Eureka! to celebrate 250 years since the creation of the CIRCUS!
HUGE thanks to our event sponsor JCT600 Ltd!
250 years ago a chap by the name of Philip Astley brought together acrobats, clowns and horse riders, put them in a circular performance space, and BAM! the modern day Circus was born…
We’ll be celebrating Circus250 this February half term with two weeks of thrills and spills, including regular sessions from circus performers and entertainers, including fire juggler, street performer and entertainer extraordinaire The Great Mandavi!
Meet the Eureka! Ringmaster and visit our Big Top to try your hand at a range of circus skills including plate-spinning, stilt walking and event taking a few steps on a tightrope!
