Tickets are still available for this event. Online booking will close an hour before the event is due to start but tickets can be purchased at the venue.

Get ready for a captivating night at the circus packed with thrills, extraordinary feats, laughs and live music. A stunning troupe of acrobats, aerialists, daredevil stuntmen and musicians is putting on a jaw-dropping spectacle just for you.

But there’s a problem: no-one is prepared, and mishaps, disasters and disagreements threaten to wreck the show. A flying aerialist is still ironing her dress, a cranky diva gets tangled in the rigging – and is that one of the stuntmen dangling from the lighting bar? Catastrophe is just one wrong move away!

Flown is confidently choreographed chaos. Amidst the mayhem, the performers fly, fling, spin and swing across the set in perfect time, all accompanied by an original score played live. It’s big, beautiful and bonkers – an experience to excite the whole family.
