Celebrating its 10th birthday this year, Laya Healthcare's City Spectacular is going to be even bigger, better and more spectacular than ever as it takes to Dublin’s Merrion Square this July.

Featuring 34 time Guinness world-record-holding sword-swallower The Space Cowboy; metal bar-bending American strong woman Mama Lou; fast-footed football freestyler Victor Rubilar and female contortionist Bendy Em, you and the whole family won’t be able to hold in the oohs and aaahs as something spectacular awaits behind every corner.

Don’t get too dizzy watching Trampoline Mission 3 jump to unbelievable heights, as the Belgian trio perform for the first time in Ireland. Or maybe you’d prefer some quality family time at the Super Troopers with Laya Healthcare area, which focuses on physical activity in a fun, safe environment as it hosts Happy Yoga and Fit Kidz classes.

For the more creative and inquisitive among us, the ESB Spark Your Imagination is a hub for children designed especially to inspire, educate and feed the imagination. With slapstick workshops from The Ark, science shows from the zany German Doktor Kaboom along with French wooden games from Festi-Jeux, it will be hard to tear your little ones away from this zone bursting with fun, thrilling activities.

From Silent Disco Walking Tours, to the sensational Halleluia Gospel Choir, to comedy robot act Mike the Machine, and even a Petting Farm - just about every box gets ticked at this fantastic event.

The ever-popular Kid’s Court returns to Laya Healthcare's City Spectacular too where The Judge will be trying, sentencing and punishing parents in an even messier, meaner and more mischievous display than ever before. Then after all that punishment you can relax in the Layabout Area and indulge in the delights of the Eat Street Food Village.

With LauraLynn, Ireland's Children Hospice as official charity partners this year, experience why family comes first as you dive into a jam-packed programme of free events for all ages at Laya Healthcare's City Spectacular 2015.
