Once again Queen Square welcomes Cirque Bijou with their family-friendly mashup of circus, street theatre, comedy, walkabout and things to play, make and do. Come and join the fun in the Circus Playground!

Cirque Bijou are Bristol-based showmakers who push the boundaries of contemporary circus, street theatre and spectacle to make work that is unexpected, unforgettable and celebratory.

Cirque Bijou are delighted to create, programme and produce the Circus Playground in Queen Square for the second time this year, presenting a family-friendly programme of circus, street theatre, comedy, walkabout and things to play, make and do. Come and join the fun!

Amongst the exciting performances and activities on offer, you can see Cirque Bijou’s own ‘Harmonic’, a mesmerising trapeze and cello duet created for Kew Gardens’ refurbished Temperate House. There’s clowning from internationally acclaimed Fraser Hooper, aerial amazement and even some larger than life sloths...and of course the Baby Race!
