Jaw-dropping stunts and traditional circus elements combine in unmissable show

Combining traditional circus elements with jaw-dropping stunts worthy of Britain’s Got Talent, the team behind Circus Cortex up the stakes in every possible way to put on a show that really does have to be seen to be believed.
BMX riders, parkour, balancing acts, street stunts, a tight rope artist that really dials up the danger factor and a very friendly clown are just some of the highlights from this show-stopping performance, which is full of heart-in-mouth moments.
So, let’s set the scene: popcorn and candy floss has been served (in full face visor PPE to ensure Covid-19 safety), the crew have changed their outfits and are now ready for show time.
The house lights have dimmed, neon strobes are spiralling across the tent and suspenseful music is playing...
The result? A tense atmosphere built up as performers hop from pillar to post, showcasing their acrobatic skills in the process.
Almost immediately, those in the audience have forgotten that they’re actually in the middle of a field.
What’s even better is that, as part of the crew’s tour of the U.K.’s smaller villages, it all takes place on the doorstep - in the Fenland village of Wimblington...
- 1 Discount store expanding making it ‘bigger and better for customers’
- 2 Salesman Stephen who 'has a smile every day' marks 45 years at firm
- 3 Farmer ‘feeling low’ due to increasingly difficult working conditions
- 4 Jury deliberates in trial of driver accused of causing baby’s death
- 5 Painter who captured town before 1978 floods finishes 44 years on
- 6 Arson causes fire to rip through derelict building
- 7 Jury to go out in trial of driver accused of causing toddler's death
- 8 Police officer speaks out after violent assault left bleed on brain
- 9 Man and teenager jailed after carrying out ‘horrific’ homophobic attack
- 10 Two vehicles in ditches after crash on A141 between March and Guyhirn
Without giving too much of the show away, the skipping unicycle rider (yes, you read that right) is an early highlight, particularly with the younger audience who gasp as an unbelievably tall upgrade is wheeled out.
Impressively, no matter where you’re sat in the tent, the view is unrestricted and it’s impossible to not feel fully immersed in the high-octane action.
So, with half-term here and the colder nights drawing in, what better way to keep your children entertained (and stay warm) than experiencing the show for yourself?
Don’t delay, though, as Circus Cortex is only at The Priory Golf Centre, March Road, Wimblington, March, PE15 0RW until October 25. We guarantee you’ll leave wanting to join them.
