Come on a journey back in time

The highly acclaimed and much-loved Flying Fruit Fly Circus return with a brand new show set amongst a 1940’s rural junkyard. Transforming trash into magical landscapes, come on a journey back to a time when the neighbourhood street was a playground full of adventure and make-believe.

You can expect jaw-dropping acrobatics, spectacular shadow puppetry and world class circus skills from this extraordinary cast of young artists aged 10-18 years old.
