Direct from six sold-out seasons in London’s Hyde Park Winter Wonderland, and from three packed out theatre tours, one of Britain’s most contemporary thrill circus, Cirque Berserk, comes to the area for five days.

Showcasing the finest in traditional circus skills, Cirque Berserk brings this treasured form of live entertainment bang up-to- date in a jaw-dropping spectacular – created especially for theatres.

Cirque Berserk

Combining contemporary cirque-style artistry with adrenaline-fuelled stunt action, this astoundingly talented international troupe includes over thirty jugglers, acrobats, aerialists, dancers, musicians and death-defying stunt men, along with the award-winning clown Tweedy.

He is described by the organisers as a comedy and slapstick legend.

No matter what he does, Tweedy seems to get into a mess, but to the delight of audiences of all ages he can always find a creative way to get out of it.

The show also features the world’s most hair-raising circus act, the legendary Globe of Terror, with three motorcyclists speeding at over 60mph inside a steel cage.

Meanwhile The Daily Telegraph highlighted the :‘Eye popping acrobatic feats defying the laws of physics’.

Performances take place at 7.30pm from Tuesday to Friday and then 1.30pm, 4.30pm and 7.30pm on Saturday. Tickets for the show cost £13.50 and £27.
