A wild circus week is coming to Mullumbimby that will include The Wheel of Death and The Famous Spiegeltent between 26 September and 2 October.
‘After the past 12 months it’s great to come back in such a strong fashion with an amazing program,’ National Circus Festival Director Alice Cadwell said.
The 2021 festival was cancelled owing to COVID and then the company and its festival site in Mullumbimby was ravaged by the Northern NSW floods in February 2022. So the upcoming National Circus Festival is an opportunity to celebrate the triumphant return of the Festival.
One of Australia’s premiere acrobatic companies, Gravity & Other Myths was recently announced, along with Werk It, from Victoria, and international juggling sensation Joe Fisher.
‘We are looking forward to celebrating this year’s National Circus Festival. It will be a chance for the whole community to come together, enjoy world-class shows featuring amazing artists, wonder at the 25m inflatable globe, join a workshop, and watch out for The Wheel of Death,’ said Ms Cadwell.
‘We have the Outdoor Cinema, music acts in collaboration with Mullum Music Festival, and The Famous Spiegeltent! It will be fun for the whole family, unexpected delights, great food and coffee, and so much more.’
The training program (26–30 September) will be followed by the weekend of 30 September – 2 October that will see the festival go into full swing, with a program of more than 220 performers at five venues including two Big Tops and The Famous Spiegeltent.
