See The Spectacular Human Cannonball

The 1920s brought new and exciting forms of entertainment such as jazz and cabaret; while this proved a delight to audiences, it was a disaster for circuses, who were quickly losing their fan base. Only the biggest and best shows were able to survive, and they often resorted to underhand tactics like spying and sabotage.

Chaplin's Circus is bust; the family have one last chance to save the business. An exciting Human Cannonball will be sent off rocketing into the air. But there is a spy in their midst, who will do anything to make sure Chaplin's circus fails. Will the Chaplins put on the greatest show on Earth, or will the human cannonball backfire?

Find out for yourself when Chaplin's Circus arrives when Brent Cross NCR Car Park as part of their 2014 tour. A brand new show created by three veteran entertainers, performances will be between the 31st July - 10th August, Tickets cost 17 - 25 for adults and 12 - 20 for children. In addition, there will be circus skills workshops teaching kids the art of juggling, acrobatics, and magic tricks.

With a gripping narrative, this 1920s style pantomime ditches the clowns in favour of the amazing Human Cannonball, an act that has not been performed here in years. So roll up, roll up, gather inside the UK's largest circus tent, and be entertained like it's 1924.
