Circus shows at castle
Roll up, roll up for a magical circus show at a castle.
The award-winning Brothers Grimm fairy tale-inspired circus performances by acrobatic theatre company Nicole & Martin is at Walmer Castle and Gardens, from Thursday, August 31 to Sunday, September 3.
The performers travel internationally in their old fashioned circus caravans and wagons and will pitch their canvas tent outside the castle, performing a different show each night, re-imagining a traditional story and bringing it to life with music, acrobatics, theatre and juggling. Thursday’s show, The Girl with No Hands includes a tightrope, while on Friday, Iron John will be a musical extravaganza with an aerial hoop. Saturday’s performance, The Fisherman and His Wife is produced from a single wooden box, while on Sunday there will be a tale of four animals who escape their farm to become musicians. Tickets cost £14, £9 for children, with shows recommended for ages fie and up.
