the wave poster-page0001 (4)Supported by the Newquay BID, Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th will see Swamp Circus perform “The Wave” live from the Killacourt as part of Newquay’s 12th annual Fish Festival. Generally a ticketed event the Newquay BID has paid for the Wave to come to Newquay meaning that it will be a free event for residents and visitors alike to come and enjoy.

Swamp Circus is one of the longest running contemporary circuses in England and The Wave is a must see for everyone who loves the sea and laughter. It’s a fast moving acrobatic comedy telling the story of a lovely seaside holiday, with a giant plastic bottle monster lurking in the depths and an action packed journey to the beach and into the water…with flamenco dancing lobsters, a clown on a lilo and acrobatic dolphins. The beauty and fragility of the underwater world is seen through film, puppetry and circus performance in the air and on the beach!

BID Manager Kate Cortez said: “Newquay’s Fish Festival is a fantastic part of our events calendar and is an event that continues to be cherished by Newquay’s residents and visitors each year. Whilst still continuing to support the event with PR we are thrilled to be adding to it this year with the Wave. It’s a great way to encourage visitors to enjoy the town centre as well as the festival whilst enabling the Fish Festival to grow.”

Performances will run at 1.30pm and 3.30pm on both Saturday and Sunday on the Killacourt, plus there will be free have-a-go circus workshops from 3pm on Friday 12th and 11am on Saturday and Sunday at Newquay Harbour.  The workshops will give Fish Festival goers the chance to come and try their hand at a range of circus skills such as juggling, diablo, hula hooping, stilt walking and poi, plus Friday’s workshop will also include a tight wire and unicycle. The Circus Skill Workshops are run by professional tutors, with the aim of helping to build fitness, awareness, confidence and team building skills in a fun interactive way.
