The National Circus Festival has pitched several big tops at the Mullumbimby Showgrounds this weekend (Sept 30 – Oct 3) showcasing the amazing talents of our contemporary carnie community.

See death defying acts by some of the best emerging artists from hoola hoopers to aerial acrobats. No lions or elephants at this gathering, just sheer physical talent.

Hear Brett Haylock from the Brunswick Picture House talk about his long association with the jewel in the Festival’s crown, The Famous Speigeltent, which is playing host to his baby, the Cheeky Cabaret, among other fabulous feats of humanity – 4.45pm Tuesday September 27 here.
