Bert and Bert

We are really thrilled that the brilliant and very funny FoolHardy Circus will be with us from Good Friday, 29th March until Sunday 7th April.

They will be running three shows each day in their 12o seat Big Top at 12.00 midday, 2.30pm and 4.00pm,

The Foolhardy clowns have been plying their trade for 29 years and we are known for our robust knockabout style which features mouth watering comic timing,  circus skills, clown skits both new and old,  presented in a cartonesque landscape with children and families as our target audience. This has resulted in a large fan base and the local media title “Norfolk’s Favourite Clowns.”

Over the years we have tackled many classic clown routines and added our own flavour inventing a few ourselves which have since become classics namely “diving in the bucket” and the “chocolate routine”.

Over the years we have worked for Zippos circus, Austin brothers Circus, Arts Play umbrella and Croissant Neuf circus and  have had residencies at Gateshead garden festival, Southport Pleasure dome; Toured abroad with Circus Royale, attended international festivals, such has Houthalen festival of laughter, Gent Festival, and Middlekurke festival. Have been the resident clowns at Center Parcs and for the last 18 years toured our own show attracting international acts and creating a new themed show every year. A productive output second to none with rave reviews and sold out shows.

The foolhardy theatre show continues to tour theUK. And recently was at Bungay theatre and the Cut Halesworth.

Artistically we promoted rural touring with the local authorities and developed a unique circus in schools programme (CRISP) which continues to break new ground in educational provision.

We are also well known on the festival circuit being the first circus atNorwichandNorfolkfestival and perennial favourites atGlastonburymain and kid’s festival as well as many other festivals and events.

Other credits include Xmas pantos at the Theatre Royal Norwich and with Jellybean productions.  TV programme made about us, and guest spots and parts in kids and adult television “Through the looking glass,” “Magic Carnival” and   “The Mighty Boosh” etc.

We have also worked with Jasper Carrot, Les Dennis and Russ abbot on their TV programmes and been in a number of films “TomsMidnightGarden.”

We combine an eclectic blend of Clowning, Circus Skills, Tumbling and physical Theatre to create a `cartoonesque` landscape. We have entertained people and children from all walks of life, ages and nations our work being both accessible and innovative.
