The performance is a mix of hilarious and thrilling acrobatics, juggling and sideshow antics from a forgotten era. When combined with the glamorous costumes and sparkling vintage atmosphere of The Wonderland Spiegeltent, you really are transported back to another time.

Another real plus for this performance is that it is raised up on an elevated stage and the seating is on three different levels so even those children on bar stools at the back (like my three and four year olds) get a good view of the stage.

The talented performers have a gift for keeping the audience engaged and mesmerised, with my 12 month old bopping and clapping along for almost the entire hour. The older children are even given the opportunity to participate on stage at one point.
