Roll Up! Roll Up! The circus is coming to Wickham Festival!

Among the many exciting new attractions at this year’s festival we have Fit Up, a fabulously fantastic popup touring theatre circus company. Thea-cus! Fit Up performers are Natasha McGhie and Corey Pickett. Natasha has worked in circus and theatre since a child including Big Fun, No Fit State community and Bassline Circus. Corey is a polished all-round international performer with a background in theatre. He combines circus, music and physical theatre to create an energetic and eccentric performance. From 5 ball juggling to a 5 foot unicycle, you can guarantee Corey will enthral and entertain.

They are regulars at venues such as Covent Garden and will be performing a range of their street shows during the day and a cabaret performance in the evening. We’re not entirely sure what shows they have in mind for Wickham Festival, but we sure hope the acclaimed Felicity Footloose makes an appearance. She is best described as a fruitcake that lives in the 80’s and just wants to boogie! She juggles, dances and performs daredevil acrobatics, even going as far as to hang from her toes and juggle knives hanging upside down! It’s action-packed comedy to a fabulous 80’s sound track!

Don’t forget there’s less than two weeks to go before the best value earlybird season tickets close. If you buy now you can save £30 per adult on the gate price.

    You’ll love The Copper family. Grew up in the same area as them.

    Not a very high bar... but yes, it will be a good one. Any more announcements to be made?

    Is Jerry Douglas still playing ?
