The wait is over! We are delighted to announce the highly anticipated return of Circus Gerbola with their first run of shows since March 2020. Ireland’s treasured circus families – Circus Gerbola and Tom Duffy’s Circus will come together with ISACS artists (Polina Shapkina and Kathleen Doherty) for an exclusive collaboration –A Celtic Voyage – coming to you live from Slane Castle, Co. Meath. The shows promise to be bigger and better than ever, running for a limited time only from Friday 8 – Sunday 17 October 2021.

The Gerbola’s have a deep family background in the Circus, entertaining audiences far and wide, stretching back over eight generations. The Gerbola circus family are incredibly grateful for the welcome, safe-guarding, and official UNESCO state recognition of the Irish Traditional Travelling Circus onto the National Inventory of Intangible Cultural Heritage. Along with Ireland’s Entertainment sectors, the Circus faced devastating impacts due to the COVID-19pandemic, missing a staggering 750+ performances to date combined. Supported by the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts Gaeltacht, Sports & Media under the Live Performance Support Scheme, Circus Gerbola is excited to finally welcome you back inside the state-of-the-art Big Top for an unforgettable experience.
