SATURDAY 25 JUNE – THIS EVENT IS CANCELLED TODAY DUE TO HIGH WINDS WHICH MAKES CONDITIONS TOO DANGEROUS FOR THE PERFORMERS. CHECK BACK TO MAKE SURE THAT THE EVENT WILL GO AHEAD ON SUNDAY 26 JUNE.
“It’s day 79 and we have made it to the festival, just hours away from crossing the finish line on this spectacular adventure. We have crossed five continents, 24 time zones and I am down to my last pair of clean underpants. My traveling companion continues to complain but they’ve proven their worth several times over. I can’t wait to see the faces on my friends at the reform clubs when I cross the finish line. Had a spot of bother with transport for the last leg, but we’ve managed to secure these handy hot air balloons. We’re going to drop a line, tie off and enjoy this festival for a bit- maybe even have a cup of tea!.”
Join Phileas Fogg and his valet Passepartout as they attempt to circumnavigate the world in just 80 days. The year is 1872 and it’s day 79 of the journey. Our intrepid adventurers are just hours away from crossing the finish line, if they can just coerce their hot air balloons to go in the right direction they stand to win a grand prize.
From the makers of Baba Yaga’s House, The Giant Balloon Show and The Tiny Travelling Tightwire Show and Falconry Dismay comes a hilarious roam-about fusing modern technology and the classic adventure novel by Jules Verne.
