Weekend of Wonders and Market Extravaganza

Date: Sat 1st Sep - Sun 2nd Sep

Time: 10.00 - 15.00

Roll up, roll up; the spectacular Weekend of Wonders returns to Royal William Yard this September, with world-renowned circus group, The Invisible Circus. Two days of comedy, danger, artistry and awe-inspiring performances that guarantee an unforgettable day out for all ages.

With a troupe of performers descending on the Yard from 10am to 3pm on Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd September, Weekend of Wonders promises to be a show-stopping spectacle with high octane street shows and roving performers. Some of the UK’s most renowned street performers will entertain the crowds with daring feats throughout the day, including tightrope walking violinists, rolla bolla balancing knife jugglers, super heroes, acrobats, balloon modellers and more!

Joined by Yskynna aerial dance who will be presenting a hypnotic work of pendulum and wall running on our back wall. Watch and wonder as dancers run, leap, flip and spin high above you. With perfect viewing from the side road outside the main entrance to Ocean Studios. 

With a selection of food and craft traders open for business at the Yard on the Saturday of the event, the Sunday coincides with the return of the monthly Good Food Market. Bringing together the region’s finest artisan food, drink and craft stalls on the lawn, to offer a variety of mouth-watering refreshments and gifts. From the freshest local produce to some unique arts and crafts, the market attracts some of the South West’s top suppliers and artisan makers each month, and September’s event is set to be one of the best yet.

The Invisible Circus is a Bristol-based street performance troupe, whose members have been performing together since 2002. They regularly entertain crowds at arts festivals, carnivals and in independent creation spaces across the UK, and visitors to Weekend of Wonders can expect an immersive storytelling experience that they are unlikely to forget.
