Fool Steam Ahead is setting sail, full of pure imaginative joy for children and adults alike. Three distractible deckhands are faced with a ship to clean, a raucous audience, and a pesky seagull – it’s a miracle they get any work done at all.

Expect daredevil stunts, incredible acrobatics, and most importantly loads of belly laughs in a show that combines a mind-blowing circus with off the wall comedy!

Created for 5-8 year olds – but will be joyous for all who are young at heart! This circus theatre production is imaginative circus theatre at its best.

Kids must be accompanied by an adult for all activities.
