Welcome to CARNIVAL OF COLOURS 2023!
Brought to you by In Your Space Circus

We are back again with the best Circus, Arts & Music festival for its age in Derry.

And it’s officially our SWEET SIXTEENTH! (OMG, how cute!)

We are taking over the city streets again, but this time the festival will take place smack-bang at the start of the summer hollybobs on the 1st & 2nd July because we have some other exciting treats to bring you in August!

We’ve gathered a whole host of circus, music & artsy madness… more bunting than you can cope with, grassy spaces, major tunes & some utterly delicious Legenderry Food *chefs kiss*

Oh and it wouldn’t be Carnival of Colours without a selection of the finest circus & street theatre acts on the planet! So what have we got lined up for you this year? The incredible Simple Cypher will present their combination of cyr wheel, juggling & hiphop (whaaat!?).

We’ve got the outrageously talented Simon Llewellyn. Love circus? Love football?
Well then Simon is your man! Mc Fois will bring his bewitching charm and incredible skills to the City Centre and Doris & Mable’s Book Club will take to the skies with aerial, acrobatics and bucketloads of silliness! Back by popular demand… Frankie Magilligan will be here to spoil you with his hilarious antics and swoon-worthy juggling skills!

We’re also bringing back the fabulous pocket-sized festival-within-a-festival PARK VIBES in The Peace Garden, so join us to try some circus skills or check out the fabulous talent at the Future Youth stage!


Rock & roll legends at The Nerve Centre will be throwing out major tunes at The Hidden Pavilion (behind The Guildhall)


And last, but certainly not least… we have a special treat for all you adults out there! 1st July, The Curious Cabaret is BACK for one night only at The Nerve Centre. Expect comedy, music and circus wows!So, get the diary out now and mark 1 & 2nd July – BEST DAYS EVER! And join us for Carnival of Colours 2023!!
