Step Right Up! Let's Circus in The Grassmarket!

The Greater Grassmarket is delighted to bring the gutsy acrobatic circus show 'Arrr we there yet?' to our community stage on both Saturday 18th June and Sunday 19th June (12:30 - 3pm) in association with Let's Circus (the Travelling Circus School and International Performance Company). There will also be a Circus School Workshop taking place before the main show from 11am, where participants can learn the art of Circus performance!

The Show:

Arrr we there yet? by Head First Acrobats
A fabulous forty minutes of pirate themed circus mayhem! These acrobatic pirates turn ship-life upside down! Walking the plank becomes the high flying teeterboard, cooking for the crew involves juggling knives and steering the ship spinning upside down in the Roue Cyr Wheel! An all ages show with amazing acrobatics and hilarious slapstick comedy.

Arrr we there yet? is a gutsy acrobatic show, with hard tricks, sweat and classic comedic timing. More action than a movie, more laughs than a stand up show and way more fun than you can imagine. This top quality show comes from the International Contemporary Circus, all the way from Melbourne, Australia, to perform it’s Scottish premier in the Grassmarket!

So roll up! Roll up! Enjoy the family friendly fun... The circus is coming to the Old Town!
