    Drawing inspiration from circus history, heritage, and traditions, internationally renowned NoFit State Circus bring award-winning director Firenza Guidi together with a world-class international cast to present the Welsh Premiere of Lexicon. High-quality contemporary circus, vivid physical storytelling and an uplifting live score from a critically acclaimed company.

    The grounds of Hampton Court will ring out with charging horses hooves and the clash of cold metal, as King Henry VIII and his court take up residence for that most Tudor of royal sports - the joust. All the pomp of lavish court entertainment will be brought to life with dazzling displays of sword fighting, courtly games, and music.

    A quirky dance show for young children exploring the world beneath their feet and all of its wriggling inhabitants. Featuring worms, slugs, snails, spontaneous outbreaks of ant dancing and plenty of obscure insect-related facts, Grass uses performance, puppetry and projection to inspire children to look closely at the world around them, to get mucky and play.
