Circus Funtasia Comes to Swinton


Roll-up, roll-up (sorry I couldn’t resist), Circus Funtasia returns to Manchester, setting up tent in Swinton to entertain us staycationing Mancunians over the half-term holiday. Last time they were in our neck of the woods, Wythenshawe Park to be exact, we were lucky enough to bag a couple of ringside seats, so we know it’s good.

Circus Funtasia promises a modern twist on a classic with state-of-the-art lighting, cool soundtrack and brilliant choreography, and they delivered. To quote my own review (is that allowed?) “slick, great lighting, a bit of Happy by Pharell Williams (very popular in our household) and a great nod to the Suicide Squad.”

But they keep their old-skool charm; this is still very much a wholesome, super-family-friendly day out. Acts include: a tightrope walker, juggler, feats of aerial daring and acrobats all held seamlessly together by Anthony the Clown, a funny, silent compère. We particularly loved his charming balloon routine… watch out for it in act two.

It all wraps up with the a heart-stopping motor cycle finale, entitled The Globe of Death. An incredibly exciting end to a great show. The children I was with loved Circus Funtasia, aged three and just one and they sat ensconced for the duration (almost two hours), popcorn and light-up toys clutched in sticky mitts.
