Circus Funtasia – the circus that’s not just for kids

Circus Funtasia is back in Exmouth, and it’s bigger and better than ever. This talented troupe are set to perform at the Imperial Recreation Ground from Wednesday 7th until Sunday 17th July, 2022.

With high-flying acrobats, flame-throwing fire-eaters, and 360 degree motorcycle stunts, this ninety minute show certainly packs a punch – and proves that the circus isn’t just for kids.

Circus Funtasia has gained a reputation for world-class stunts over the last few years, and 2022 is no exception. There is an eye-popping performance by two Tommy Shelby lookalikes with a taste for danger. The duo leap and handstand across the giant rotating ‘Wheel of Death’ holding onto their flat caps with plenty of heart-in-mouth moments.

The Globe of Death returns with new riders and routines to impress the keenest petrol heads. “Nothing beats the exhilaration of seeing several motorbikes riding at top speed upside down inside a metal cage, millimetres apart!” says Tracy Jones, Ringmistress.

There’s also fire-breathing, hula-hooping, and aerialists who drop spectacular heights from the roof of the Big Top. Plus, the UK’s only female ‘sky-walker’ defies gravity as she steps bravely across the clouds.

The Geek remains the star of the show. A cross between Lee Evans and Freddie Mercury, he enchants the younger members of the audience while still making grown-ups laugh out loud.

“You’re hard pushed to find better bang for your buck at Circus Funtasia” adds Tracy. “Consistently high quality acts combined with a seamless modern style and great soundtrack, make this circus stand out as one of the best in the UK today.

Look out for the cheeky Cirque du Vulgar in the Big Top on Saturday night too, when the cast don their risqué outfits and perform an entirely different show for over 18’s only. Details from www.cirquevulgar.com
