What to expect
‘Roll Up, Roll Up’ by Simple Cypher
Amazing, physically-impressive tricks performed with effortless agility – including a whole routine inside a massive, spinning steel ring known as a Cyr wheel.
Watch as the two performers build on each others’ moves, combining freestyle hip hop and b-boying with juggling and acrobatics to wow audiences of all ages.
‘Pirate Taxi’ by Pirates of the Carabina
Have you ever seen someone spinning, upside down, in a hoop, 20ft up in the air, balanced by their partner, on the ends of a see-sawing ladder, rotating on top of a car?
Sometimes serious, but more often funny, Pirate Taxi is a family-friendly circus show for adventurers of all ages. Enjoy incredible aerial performance on an incredible set – literally built in and on an old-school London taxi!
The funnest start to a Saturday afternoon in Gloucester, with 2 fantastic circus performances back-to-back!
Where and when
Saturday 11 September 2021, 2pm
Greyfriars Bowling Green
Gloucester, GL1 1HT
The old bowling green 😮🤩
A hidden gem, tucked away in the middle of Gloucester. It’s normally locked up but we’ve got access specially for this event!
Who will enjoy it
Great for anyone who likes:
circus skills parkour impressive physical feats fun activities for kids family outings acrobatics people working together taxis?!
These are two shows that anyone can enjoy. The content is suitable for all ages. Even cynical teenagers will be impressed by the giant spinning wheel tricks or the balancing act on a 30ft scaffold.
Bring the family, or your mates, or just pop along on your own. Absolutely everyone is welcome.
Practical details and tickets
The two shows combined last about an hour.
We want anyone to be able to come along – so we’ve made the tickets pay what you choose.
An event like this would often cost £10-£15. But we don’t want people to miss out because of price.
If you can’t afford anything at all, we’d love you to come along for free. If you can comfortably pay more than the suggested price, please consider doing so – generosity is good for everyone! Whatever your situation, we want you to be welcome. There are no favourites at our events: you’re all family to us 💖
There won’t be seating at the bowling green, so bring a chair or a blanket if you’d like something to sit on.
It’s a big space for 100 audience members so there’ll be plenty of room if you want to spread out from other people.
