World Circus Day with Circus Factory

April 16th , 2022

Circus Factory is taking over the courtyard at Wandesford Quay for World Circus Day. Ready, Steady, Hup it’s time for some super cool circus for young people with our “Super Star Circus” followed by a “Circus Disco”. Bring your kids, or borrow some kids, expect amazing tricks, monumental failures, and even a chance to try out your own hula hoop skills.

It’s been a long hot minute since we’ve put on a Circus Cabaret, and as the night draws in, we invite you to Ready, Steady, Pop and enjoy some home-grown high-flying talent. The perfect start to an evening out in the city.
