2nd September 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Step right up! Right up! That’s right folks, a nostalgic step back in time to rediscover the mystery and magic of the travelling vintage “Le Cirque”, Picnic Paradiso!

Enter the old school Big Top Circus tent and be enticed by the Ring Master, whose voice will enchant with teases, delights and an introduction on the evenings intrigues! Make your way to the Freak Show with the Bearded Lady, Two headed boy or who knows what you might find…perhaps a turn at the Roulette tables?

A night filled with intrigue, circus games and wonderfully weird drinks stations manned by staff dressed the part as strong men, bearded ladies and tutu showgirls…oh and don’t forget the stilted actors, who will be by far, the best photo ops of the night.

Want to join the “Cirque du Freak”? Register to have your look done by our professional make-up artists while enjoying a bottle of bubbles.

From giant swings, games, the Freak Show, the Bearded Lady, join us for the unimaginable amongst Juggler’s Balls and Red hot vixen Cigarette girls.

PS: this one is for the Big Kids only 😉
