Ever wanted to run away to the circus? Here's your chance
Roll up, roll up! The circus is coming and everyone is invited for an afternoon of free family-friendly fun. On November 21 some of Perth's best circus performers will be showing off their skills in two exciting shows as Circus Town comes to Bassendean. As well as the shows there will be circus skills workshops and plenty of other entertainment.
Proudly presented by the Town of Bassendean, the Circus Town shows feature a blend of comedy, circus and theatre arts. Get ready to laugh with comedy and variety performer Magnus Danger Magnus and be amazed at Mr Ricochet's high energy juggling. Bizircus will entertain all ages with "bizarre and brilliant" circus comedy while the Candy Girls aerial dance will have the audience wishing they could fly.
Show 1 will take place at 2:00 and 4:00 pm and Show 2 will be on at 3:00 and 5:00 pm.
After being inspired by the show, head to the Circus Challenge to have a go at various circus skills. Learn to juggle, try stilt walking or plate spinning or ride a unicycle. There will also be balloon twisting and face painting.
