A great show very funny in places with a lot of ad living through out the show. Plenty of circus skills evolved in the show. It was like a circus pantomime. It's a pity it's only on for half term week.

You have a perfect view of the auditorium wherever you sit, only word of warning is to be aware of the smell of fuel after the motorbikes carry out their fantastic show. Definitely worth seeing
