Duo Extreme will be flying through the air inside the Big Top as they showcase their skills as aerial performers.

Duo Extreme have just been awarded the first prize in a festival of circus artistes that took place last December and January in Germany.

They beat some very tough competition to this prestigious award and top a list of best acts voted for by the public.

“We are really excited to be able to bring our brand new show to UK for the first time and we hope it will be well received as we pride ourselves on producing high quality, affordable family entertainment.

They said: “There will be something for everyone as we can guarantee laughs, thrills, suspense and lots of action.

“It is important to remember that in a world full of digital and virtual entertainment with computer games and the internet, nothing can ever beat bringing the whole family together to witness the magic of a live performance. Several of our acts touring with us in 2018 will be making their UK debut so we will have many new and exciting feats that have never before been seen in this country.”

Box office open on site from 10am-8pm daily.
