Tumble Circus’ Winter Circus has been hailed a success by fans as the show enters its final week at Writers’ Square in the Cathedral Quarter in Belfast.
Performers Ken Fanning, Tina Segner, Angelique ‘Reckless’ Ross, Ali Stanger, Henrik Gard, Grant Goldie, Paul ‘Bucky’ Taylor and seven year old Kasper have been taking to the stage in the big top since the show opened on December 17.
Annette O’Hagan, who attended the show with her children, posted on Google Reviews: “Tumble circus, you are amazing, I had such a laugh from the moment I got there with Bucky keeping us entertained at the entrance, to then the whole show, all u guys kept us entertained with many laughs and amazement throughout. It will now be our Xmas tradition every year to go.”
Hannah Pat added: “Brilliant show, suitable for all the family, very relaxed atmosphere, the perfect mix of comedy, silliness, awe and wonder! Loved every minute of it.”
Meanwhile on Facebook, the reviews were pouring in on Facebook with one mum saying: “Best day and evening spent in Belfast at Tumble Circus with my little trio. My kids loved the interactive performance.”
Also on Facebook Wendy Afonso-Cole posted to the Winter Circus team: “We absolutely loved it, our first time and you were all fab.”
Now in its fifth year, the organisers at Winter Circus said fans can expect this year’s show “to be louder and prouder than ever before”.
Tina Segner of Tumble Circus said: “We are delighted to be back and we’ve got an amazing show lined up this year in our fully heated Tumble Circus big top tent.”
“Tumble Circus combines circus skills with comedy, theatre and social commentary to make people laugh, react, and act.”
The Tumble Circus Winter Circus show is an all human performance with everything from comedy, fun, hilarity and professional circus performance to amazing aerial skills.
“The Winter Circus shows will be spectacular with an inspiring modern soundtrack” said Ken Fanning of Tumble Circus, adding: “visitors to the big top can expect modern, high skilled acts, including acrobats, aerialists and jugglers in this one hour of hammer smashing Belfast inspired circus.
“From international circus artists to well-known comedy characters both young and old audiences will be able to enjoy the show whilst expecting big laughs and some mighty craic.”
