11/07/18, 25/07/18, 03/08/18, 24/08/18 - Punch and Judy with Parky - Parky performs a traditional Punch and Judy show with the authentic voice of Mr Punch. The puppets and theatre are traditional in style, with slapstick and humour combined to produce the ingredients of this incomparable show.

18/07/18 - Sideshow Ramone - Join Sideshow Ramone as he takes you on a fun-filled ride of laughter. There’s something for all the family. The show is jam-packed with juggling, plate spinning, whip cracking and much, much more, so he's sure to bring a smile to any face.

20/07/18 - Bob Bobbins - Bob Bobbins has been performing all over the country with his double act 'Babcock and Bobbins' for the last 5 years. Offering an exciting mix of skills including juggling, diabolo, unicycling, plate spinning and fire juggling.

27/07/18 - Babcock & Bobbins - Babcock and Bobbins have performed all over Northern Ireland with their traditional circus show which incorporates a good mix of slapstick comedy and circus skills including fire juggling, giraffe unicycle, stilt walking, rola bola and fire breathing.

01/08/18 - The Great Mefiesto - The Great Mefiesto will baffle the crowds with tricks of balance, entertain the audience with feats of equilibristic manipulation and make them marvel at his daring attempt at physical dexterity. The show draws its inspiration from turn-of-the-century vaudeville.

08/08/18 - Dr Nick - Dr Nick will entertain and amuse all the family with his hilarious antics. Audience participation, fire juggling and an 8 foot unicycle makes this a show for the whole family.

10/08/18 - The Mac Factor - Outstanding juggling, snappy ad lib street performance (not to mention some pretty hot dance moves) and a jaw-dropping finale await. Join the remarkable, inventive and multi-skilled Tennis Dennis on his fantastical journey.

15/08/18 - Jim - Jim performs his solo show, combining all the elements of circus, including fire juggling, an 8 foot unicycle and ladder balancing.

17/08/18 - The Raven Sisters - Evocative of a bygone era, of sideshow circus and the silver screen, brought sharply into the 21st century by these dextrous damsels and their fancy footwork. It’s a high energy, non-stop cabaret of chaos, including hat manipulation, contemporary clowning and hula hooping.

22/08/18 - Borris & Ricardo - Borris the greatest magician the world has never known, along with his ever faithful assistant Ricardo, will be attempting fantastical feats of magnificent magical mastery. Sadly for Borris however, things don't always go according to plan.
