Tom Duffy’s Circus makes a long-awaited return visit to Ballymoney, Ballycastle and Coleraine.
Northern Ireland’s best-loved circus rolls into town and this year’s show looks set to thrill.
Duffy’s is one of the world’s longest-established circuses, amazing family audiences across Ireland over three centuries. The new show blends the traditional and the twenty-first century. Acts enjoyed by generations of circus-goers are brought right up-to-the-minute with a spectacular light show, state of the art sound and expert choreography.
Lovers of traditional circus acts will roar with laughter at the antics of the hilarious clowns, David and Raffy, and multi-talented Steven Munoz will perform one of the most complicated juggling sets ever seen in this country. Don’t miss the electrifying sight of this talented artist juggling with fire. Tom Jnr and Jamie Duffy take to the air with a heart-stopping wheel of death – one of the most dangerous acts in modern Circus.
The Kenya Boys are making a welcome return to Northern Ireland, with their astonishing acrobatics, twisting and tumbling, and startling human pyramids.
As always, the animal acts are the main draw for regular visitors. In the all-new Canine Review, the loveable giants, the St Bernard dogs, tend to dominate the ring, but it’s the cheeky miniature poodlesthat raise a smile with their mischief. An old favourite with every generation, Tom Duffy’s troupe of Minature Shetland Ponies make a welcome return to the ring, with a sparkling display of Jumpingand hind-leg walking. Audiences have also grown to love Tom Duffy’s llamas – see these talented performers in action and then meet them after the show with all the other animals in the Circus Zoo.
David Duffy, the Circus’s Managing Director and Ringmaster, is delighted that this year Duffy’s was selected to showcase the talents of the Munoz Family’s sea lions, direct from the world-famous Monte Carlo Circus Festival. “Andrew, Nelson and Ziggy are definitely this year’s star attraction.
Come and get to know Tom Duffy’s extended family in their own living quarters, including some of the show’s biggest stars in their outdoor swimming pool.
Tom Duffy’s Circus will be in Ballymoney on Thursday 24th & Friday 25th April, Ballycastle on Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th April, followed by a visit to Coleraine Showgrounds from Monday 28th - Wednesday 30th,
