We have put together a list of events taking place during half-term to offer families, children and more a diverse way to spend their free time with us as the Fringe.
Here is what you can expect to find:
All the way from Northern Ireland, Martin and Logy take the traditional circus double act and give it a unique and modern twist. This family-friendly show contains circus stunts that will make you gasp, juggling tricks that will surprise you, and magic tricks that will make you go WOW!
There will be shouting, cheering, and lots, and lots of laughing. Top-class circus entertainment, and the two best beards in the business. This show is suitable for children and adults of all ages.
“Martin and Logy are masters at keeping kids gasping and laughing with their well-rehearsed juggling, catching, throwing and various other things you shouldn’t try at home.” (Metro)
