2016 Recap...

Our 2016 recap actually begins in late 2015 in Hong Kong. 
On the 21st of December 2015 the Royalles British Thrill Circus packed up their red, white and blue big top and headed over to one of the biggest cities in the world to take part in the Tung Wah Charity Carnival. Along with their world class performers from England, Scotland, Columbia, Kenya, Mexico and Morocco.

For the 3 months that the performers were in Hong Kong they performed their mesmerising acts to hundreds of audience members all in aid of a great cause - The Tung Wah Group of Hospitals.




Meanwhile, in the UK the first 2016 show was the Gandeys ‘YourCircus Awakens’ 2016 tour.
The opening night of the show was the 11th February in Liverpool and from here it was non-stop for those involved, as the Circus went from city to city across the UK entertaining thousands of people over a course of 7 months before drawing to a close at Merry Hill in Birmingham on the 30th of October.






During this time the glamorous Lady Boys of Bangkok flew over to the UK from Thailand ready from their weeks of rehearsals for their 2016 ‘Forever Yours…x’ tour. The Lady Boys hit the stage in Great Britain on the 1st of April for their opening night in Derby in the specifically tailored Sabai Pavilion.

The Lady Boys graced audiences both in their big top venue and in theatres across the UK before recently ending their time with us on the 25th of November at the Sands Centre in Carlisle. Not before stopping off for their annual stint at the Edinburgh Fringe festival for the month of August!





As the end of the year drew near, the final show to close its curtains was the Chinese State Circus
On the 7th of September, this year the Chinese State Circus brought us their 2016 production of ‘Dynasty’. 






Dynasty consisted of 30 world-class Chinese acrobats, aerial artistes, and jugglers all providing non-stop action to their audiences in theatres across the UK. 
The Chinese State Circus travelled to 35 different venues over three months before finishing off the 3rd of December in Torquay at the Princess Theatre.
