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...

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.
