CircusFest 2018

4 Apr 22 Apr
London’s international festival of electrifying contemporary circus.

Founded in 2009, CircusFest is hosted by the Roundhouse and takes place at Jacksons Lane and other partner venues across London every other year.

CircusFest celebrates the future of circus: daring and diverse, punky and poetic. From the spectacular to the intimate, the festival showcases the point where circus collides with theatre, dance, live art, film and virtual reality.

Always innovating and evolving, circus has come a long way since its beginnings: 2018 marks the 250th anniversary of the invention of modern circus by entertainment entrepreneur Philip Astley. His 1768 show was a hit and a new art form was created.
