The Start of an Astounding Adventure
published Friday 22 December, 2017
Jubilant times here at Four Elms this week. After our Youth Circus' brilliant Circus: 250 Years Young show (image below) and our community cabaret on the weekend, we've been thrilled to have our 'Circus Past, Present & Future' programme partners New Vic Theatre developing, 'Astley's Astounding Adventures' in Four Elms week.
A proud moment for our community - our youth Jedi Performance Troupe performing their brilliant Circus: 250 Years Young show, as part of a project that welcomes in the 250th anniversary of circus in 2018. #circus250yearsyoung #youthcircus #jediperformancetroupe #circus #circuskids #heritagelotteryfund #heritagelotteryfunding
Astley's Astounding Adventures is a show that - along with our own show LEXICON - will celebrate Circus250; the 250th anniversary since the creation of modern circus by Newcastle-under-Lyme's famous son, Philip Astley.
