Little Angel Theatre’s Miniature Travelling Circus

Aimed at ages 3-6

This event has passed.

All tickets are £8 on Fridays at 4.45pm

All tickets are £8 for previews (16th – 23rd September)

Running Time:  approx 40 minutes

Roll up! Roll up! Take your seats for the smallest circus in town.

George the ringmaster has quite the challenge on their hands. The circus isn’t quite what it once was but even still, George has curated a programme of acts more bedazzling than ever.

But first they must make sure all of the acts are ready to razzle-dazzle. Where on earth is Flop? And why is Smelly Dog making all that fuss?

Join Little Angel’s Miniature Travelling Circus and be delighted by beautiful puppets, nostalgic magic tricks and acts so tiny you may wonder how you can possibly see them! From performing mice to acrobatic fleas – this circus has stars you won’t see anywhere else!

Age guidance

Little Angel Theatre’s Miniature Travelling Circus is aimed at ages 3-6. The performer chats with the audience and keeps them engaged with surprises and magic tricks, and there are moments for joining in. There is nothing scary in the show – there is an annoying cat called ‘Scratchy Cat’, but she’s not so bad. Under-3s may not get as much out of the experience, as the show is quite wordy and they may get a little restless as the audience stay in their seats for the 40 minute duration.
