Event Summary

An exhilarating medley of circus, theatre and illusion all in one astounding evening: see 3 shows from 3 countries in 1 brilliant evening.

Each year, BE FESTIVAL packages up three of their favourite shows from their international festival and sends them on a tour of the UK. Out on the road this year, there’ll be a daredevil, an illusionist and a juggling-computer-musical genius, performing 3 nail-biting, 30-minute shows all in one exhilarating evening.

In Take Care of Yourself Swiss daredevil and circus performer Marc Oosterhoff, lines up a ludicrous amount of whisky shots and downs them, before attempting to perform a series of hair-raising stunts. UK performance artist, illusionist and professional liar Tom Cassani, questions our collective construction of truth and lies in Someone Loves You Drive With Care. Kulu Orr’s funny, pulsating, almost perfectly controlled multimedia circus show, Control Freak, demonstrates his computer genius and desperate pursuit to control everything on stage using various electronic suits of his design.

Standard ticket price includes food which will be served during the interval at approx. 7.45pm. Please let us know at the point of booking if you have any dietary requirements.
