“What a night!”
Reviewed 5 July 2013

I attended on their Bianco tour at the Bluestone, Pembrokeshire stop with Celtic Quest Coasteering team.
Initially I was a bit dubious after hearing it would be standing for two or so hours. However this was no problem it was a fantastic evening of entertainment nothing like anything I'd seen before. Yes you stand or you can if you want but the displays are in the centre of a bit top and your right under near (pretty much) and then the next display you move around to different angles as the equipment is moved in great harmony around you by excellent stewards.

All the music was live and brilliant which just adds to it. Top night out, definitely worth a visit! And we even got chatting at the bar with a few of the performers and staff :)

“Inspirational performance!”
Reviewed 4 July 2013

NoFit State Circus stopped at Bluestone in Pembrokeshire on their 2013 tour BIANCO. The Celtic Quest Coasteering team didn't take much convincing to book tickets as it looked amazing.....we weren't dissapointed....it was awesome!

The standing audience was genius (no numb bums here!!), getting us all to move around as the stage (scaffolding, trampolines etc) was transformed for each performance. A shout out to the floor staff, not just herding us around the tent but getting into the vibe of the show too.
The performers fitness and professional manner was impressive to say the least, they obviously love what they do and were all keen to get the crowd going too.
The live band were fantastic, playing such a wide variety of music.
Popcorn and a bar that served up beers aaaaand a cup of tea for Company Mum.....outstanding!

If you get the chance to see these guys perform, go for it! We'll certainly be in the crowd for their next visit to Pembrokeshire. I'm also planning a corporate trip to Cardiff in the winter, the team building workshop looks just up our street.

A super thumbs up from me and the team, thanks for an inspiring night :)

“Chaotic alternative circus”
Reviewed 23 June 2012

They are a community based school of acrobatics and modern circus skills. They do training sessions plus performances. Saw one down the bay, no one knew what was going on, there was no stage. Odd people wandered through the crowd as people waited for something to start. Then it kicked off - the performance was is in the crowd, amazing aerial acrobatics and very innovative use of ropes/ bungey, with crazy characters. Look out for the next tour!
