Circus Funtasia is back in Wythenshawe Park from Friday 15th until Sunday 24th February and it?s bigger and better than ever.

With high-flying acrobats, flame-throwing fire-eaters, and 360 degree motorcycle stunts, this ninety minute show certainly packs a punch ? and proves that the circus isn?t just for kids.

Circus Funtasia has gained a reputation for world-class stunts over the last few years, and 2019 is no exception. Opening the show are two Tommy Shelby lookalikes with a taste for danger. The duo leap and handstand across the giant rotating ?Wheel of Death? holding onto their flat caps with plenty of heart-in-mouth moments.

The Globe of Death returns with new riders and routines to impress the keenest petrol heads. Nothing beats the exhilaration of seeing several motorbikes riding at top speed upside down inside a metal cage, millimetres apart.

There?s also fire-breathing, knife-juggling, and aerialists who drop spectacular heights from the roof of the Big Top. Plus, the UK?s only female ?sky-walker? defies gravity as she steps bravely across the clouds.

In a moment of calm a beautiful ?adagio? is told by a duo of gymnasts. Using a combination of dance and acrobatics, they tell a love story for a new generation.

The Geek remains the star of the show. A cross between Lee Evans and a goofy teenager, he enchants the youngsters while still making mum and dad laugh out loud.

You?re hard pushed to find better bang for your buck at Circus Funtasia. Consistently high quality acts combined with a seamless modern style and great soundtrack, make this circus stand out as one of the best in the UK today. With group tickets from only £25 for four people, you can?t go wrong.

Look out for the cheeky Cirque du Vulgar on Saturday nights too, when the cast don their risqué outfits and perform an entirely different show for over 18s only. Details from www.cirquevulgar.com
