NoFit State Circus Presents: LEXICON


We have teamed up with NoFit State, a contemporary circus company, to bring you an unmissable combination of live music, dance, stage design and film with traditional circus skills.

The Cardiff Stopover site will play host to their iconic silver spaceship big top to bring you matinee and evening performances throughout the festival.

Remember, this is an exclusive opportunity to experience their brand-new performance, LEXICON in Wales! With it marking 250 years since circus began, you have no excuse not to join in the celebration!

As part of Circus250, NoFit State and Firenza Guidi will create LEXICON - a daring, seductive and utterly contemporary take on circus for a seated audience in the round. Drawing inspiration from circus history, heritage, and traditions, digging in the underground of memory and celebrate the past, present and future of circus.

Team Building Sessions


Teamwork is considered to be one of the most important aspects of the Volvo Ocean Race, and the Cardiff Stopover is providing the opportunity to experience this first hand!

According to Simeon of AzkoNobel, “You want the best sailors, but you also have to think about which people will make the best team”, so put your crew to the ultimate test!

Learn to create positive crew dynamics, maintain morale and cope with the unexpected and inspiring peak performance – just a few of the challenges faced by Volvo Ocean Race sailors every day.

The Cardiff Stopover teambuilding exercise will be the ultimate challenge for friends or co-workers to try something new, in a fun and unique environment! Teams will be take part in an array of sailing challenges, explore the Race Village with a tour guide and even the chance to experience ‘Try Sail’ sessions, for those who want to get out onto the water with a specialist coach!

For an authentic experience, teams will retire with a beer and a burger, – exactly what Volvo Ocean Race sailors requested after consuming freeze-dried food for 7,000 miles!
