The Blondin Gala 15 September 2018


Our closing summer spectacle The Blondin Gala was a celebration of the historic event when in 1861 international sensation Blondin completed a tightrope walk across The Piece Hall.

The Bullzini Family recreated this great high wire feat in this specially commissioned show, alongside an array of performances including side show curiosities, vaudeville style street theatre, circus acts and magic.

The programme included: The Bullzini Family, Mark Mark, George Orange, Norvil & Josephine, Copperdollar, Artizani, Ian Marchant, Matt Bernard, Madame Zuccinni, Mat Ricardo and Circus 250 Caravan.
