Here are some highlights of last years festival, we’re already looking forward to this year already which takes place from the 13th to the 16th of November 2014.

The National Circus festival is Ireland’s largest annual circus festival and one of the most exciting, emerging festivals in Ireland.  The festival has lit up Tralee every November in a explosion of theatre, clown, aerial, fun, laughter, skill and absurdity.

The Tralee Circus Festival began in 2001 as a juggling convention.  It was a way for the diverse strands of a contemporary circus culture to meet, share ideas, fun and create an Irish expression for this exciting artform.  Over the years the Tralee Circus Festival has evolved to be Ireland’s annual contemporary circus festival.

At the heart of the festival is Circus Siamsa, a public variety show, held in Siamsa Tíre Theatre, is the national showcase for contemporary urban circus and features top national and international performers handpicked and hosted by:

The Fanzini Brothers

This years festival highlight is the Irish premiere of “hogwallops” from lost in translation circus, a hilarious, skilful ensemble circus show not to be missed. Other highlights include the first Irish performer to be awarded the prestigious circus next award, Darragh Mc Loughlin, high end juggling skill from Americas Tony Pezzo, new emerging Irish circus work on the NEST stage and Inferno, a new fire show from Passepartout circus.  All this on top of a 4 day circus convention, festival masterclasses and kids workshops, the circus sideshow festival club, Saturdays circus Siamsa shows!! So run away with us to the circus and be part of one of Ireland’s most exciting and unique festivals!
