Some of the best circus shows from around the world are coming to Norwich this summer
Chapelfield Summer Circus is returning to Chapelfield Gardens in 2019 after a successful first season last year. The circus festival was an instant hit and proved a popular addition to the city’s summer festivities. It runs from Thursday 11 to Sunday 14 July, with the distinctive big top tent hosting some of the world’s best contemporary circus shows from around the world.
Organised and run by Norfolk based Lost in Translation Circus, Chapelfield Summer Circus will feature the company’s own new shows alongside those of acclaimed international companies. All daytime and early evening shows will be suitable for all the family with late night cabarets on Friday and Saturday exclusively for adult audiences. Their mix of spectacular showmanship, circus, variety, humour and music, compered by the inimitable Abigail Collins, are a perfect late night pleasure.
Outdoor circus fun will complement the shows with drop-in workshops and circus skills instruction for all ages.
And watch out for a visit from the amazing elephant puppets that were such a big hit at last year’s Lord Mayor’s parade!
