Possibly the best circus ive ever seen! Such amazing energy on stage, truly mesmerising and exciting from start to finish. And so much more than a circus; a local NGO supporting local children through arts, education ans social work. Well worth a visit.

the show begins at 7PM. As there are no reserved seat make sure you arrive earlier,then you will have time to discover our campus. The show tonight is "tchamleak". Looking forward to welcoming you tonight.
