In addition to the free festival, we are offering a variety of ticketed events. Book now so you don't miss out.
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.
