The Oak Circus Centre in central Norwich will be presenting three performances of  their Dickens themed cabaret for all ages, A Christmas Circus Carol, on Friday 15, Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 December.


Inspired by Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, the show will give both children and adults from The Oaks’ popular circus courses the unique opportunity to perform alongside seasoned professionals from Norwich’s very own multinational Lost in Translation Circus company. It will also give a taster of the sort of skills people of all ages can learn at The Oak throughout the year. 


Lost in Translation are rapidly becoming established as one of the country’s leading and best-loved contemporary circus companies for their trademark warm humour combined with heart-stoppingly virtuosic skilful aerial and floor acrobatics. The professional performers in A Christmas Circus Carol will include Co-Director Massimiliano Rossetti and core artist Roisin Morris who have held the Guinness World Record  for most somersaults on a Korean Cradle in one minute since 2015.

The Oak Circus Centre is Lost in Translation’s own base, the only centre of its kind in the East of England run by experienced circus professionals. It runs courses for all ages from complete beginners to those looking to make a career in the contemporary circus as well as providing rehearsal and creation facilities for visiting professional companies. The facilities have recently been used by companies such as The Russian State Circus and Australia’s Casus Circus.
