TIME FOR A NEW CIRCUS

Time waits for no one...and Area 51 unveiled a brand-new circus show during a run of festive performances at the immaculate Heart Of England Conference and Events Centre right in the centre of the country. The theme of this new extravaganza was anything and everything connected with TIME and featured stunning bespoke decor and scenery alongside a troupe of first class performers including special guest star, the remarkable escapologist Tony Roberts from London who performed death-defying acts including an inverted, upside down escape while being hung from the ceiling in a straightjacket!

Time waits for no one…and Area 51 unveiled a brand-new circus show during a run of festive performances at the immaculate Heart Of England Conference and Events Centre right in the centre of the country.

The theme of this new extravaganza was anything and everything connected with TIME and featured stunning bespoke decor and scenery alongside a troupe of first class performers including special guest star, the remarkable escapologist Tony Roberts from London who performed death-defying acts including an inverted, upside down escape while being hung from the ceiling in a straightjacket!

This trick is considered among the most dangerous and complex of its kind and was popularised by the great man himself, Harry Houdini. Tony drew gasps of amazement from onlookers as he successfully managed to free himself in a trial against the clock.

In a separate stunt, the same performer drew admiration as he bizarrely managed to squeeze his whole body through the small head of a tennis racket by deliberately dislocating his shoulders!

With a voiceover from the most famous Timelord of all, Doctor Who, Circus Time proved to be a timeless and time-travelling treat of Jules Verne and steampunk flavoured flair.

As well as the stupefying antics of Tony Roberts, circus skills expert Matt Lemon treated the audience to various routines including his remarkable juggling expertise and there were contortionists and aerial silk performers together with dancers. Meet-and-greet walkabout characters were the icing on the cake for a show that is now available to hire throughout 2018.
