Gymnastic circus performance

Children of all ages met under the unmistakable peaks of the Big Top this month, as the magnificent Circus Fantasia brought its traditional family circus to the East of England Arena, July 6-10, 2022.

Twice a day, every day, performers from around the world staged an unforgettable two-hour show, including big family favourites like the Human Cannonball, with Captain Americano flying over the ring, mischief and hilarity from the clowns of Trio Rivelinos, and death-defying knife-and axe-throwing from Duo Galaxy. The most popular performers this year included Jerson, the daring Brazilian on his aerial straps, and the Demian troupe from Ukraine performing feats of acrobatic daring and imagination.

Nicole Hankins, senior event manager, East of England Arena, said “Circus Fantasia is a regular, well-loved visitor to Peterborough, and it was a pleasure to welcome so many families and younger circus-goers to our venue.”
