IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: SPRING CARNIVAL 2020 IN DERRY & STRABANE DISTRICT HAS BEEN CANCELLED DUE TO CORONAVIRUS PREVENTION MEASURES.

 

It is with a heavy heart that we announce that our installations (shown below) for Derry City & Strabane District Council's Spring Carnival are CANCELLED.
Of course, after 3 months of hard work putting these events together, we are a bit disappointed...
but we also understand and respect council's decision to put public health as the top priority!


Massive thank you to all our artists who have worked on the events up to this point.

Firstly, introducing, all the way from Amsterdam, our friends Merel Kamp and Henrick Jan-de Stuntman with their gorgerous show:

SPRINGTIME
An over the top romantic comedy in the style of a traditional silent movie.
A man and a woman are suspended from rusty steel springs.
They are limited in their freedom of movement, but within the limits the possibilities are limitless.

Date: 17th March 2020
Times: 1 & 4pm
Location: Waterloo Square

 

Next up is something beautiful we are working on with the fabulously talented Anita Woods:

The Phoenix Rises!
A sky high Aerial performance with the spectacular Anita Woods.
Date: 17th March 2020
Times: 1pm, 2pm, 3pm, 4pm & 5pm
Location: Peace Garden, Foyle Street


As the story goes, the phoenix lives up to 100 years.
Near the end of its life, it settles in to its nest of twigs which then burns ferociously, reducing bird and nest to ashes. From those ashes, a fledgling phoenix rises – renewed and reborn.
The Phoenix rises more beautiful, more powerful & more spectacular than before.
Come along and watch the rebirth of this incredible creature as we enter the Spring!

 

And we are thrilled to be bringing back our friends from Premiere Circus:

The Afrikan Warriors
As part of the Ubuntu Festival we will be bringing our fantastic friends Afrikan Warriors
from Premiere Circus back to perform for Derry-Londonderry!!
Hailing from Tanzania this talented troupe combine awe-inspiring acrobatics & traditional dance and are sure to help us shake off the winter blues and get the party started!!
Date: 17th March 2020
Times: 1.30 & 3.30pm
Location: Waterloo Place

 

We will also have some bouncing bunnies, buzzing bees and flappy butterlfies out welcoming in the Spring!

 

And our brilliant Circus School Participants will be taking part in the Spring Carnival Parade at 2pm so watch out for some awesome circus demonstrations! Check out the route below!

Thank you so much to Derry City & Strabane District Council for allowing us to bring some circus magic to the Spring Carnival!
