Few things beat the excitement of a trip to the circus, with acrobatic performances and daredevils performing stunts which get hearts racing.

While most circus activity takes place in big tops, for one night only later this month it’s going to take place in a hugely unique Bristol location.

On October 25, Bristol Museum will come alive and play host to a vast array of circus skills and performances aimed to entertain and wow people of all ages.

The museum has teamed up with Circomedia

In association with circus group Circomedia, every room of the museum will host something different for people to either watch or take part in, while the grand halls will welcome jaw-dropping performances from talented acrobats.

Attendees to the free event will also be able to dress up and entertain their family and friends in themed photo booths and have a go at juggling, tightrope walking, hoops and more with experienced members of the circus on hand to help out.

A Circomedia spokesperson said: “Circus is celebrating 250 years this year and there are some great events to mark the anniversary, but none as unique as this.

“It’s going to be a very immersive event with lots of opportunities to get stuck in and the museum will provide a stunning backdrop to the events.”

The event is expected to be popular and queues are expected outside the museum, so arriving early is advised to avoid missing out.

The event is part of Museums at Night, the UK-wide festival of ‘lates’ in museums and galleries, produced by Culture24.

Held twice a year, it invites all UK museums, galleries and heritage sites to throw open their doors after hours to showcase their treasures in unexpected ways and this year it explodes to life on 25 – 27 October.
