There is something magical about visiting the circus, the big top, the bright lights and the amazing atmosphere. Paulos Circus visits Darts Farm in Exeter every year, yet I have never been.
E has never been to the circus before, so when we were invited to see the show I knew she would love it.
When we pulled up to Darts Farm it was impossible to not see the big pink top, this made E very excited. Once we had parked we went and collected our tickets. We were then told we could sit where ever we liked. It didn’t matter where you sat as you would still get an amazing view.
As we walked into the big top we were able to buy popcorn, candyfloss, drinks and a flashing light toy. As E doesn’t like popcorn or candyfloss so I let her having one of the flashing light things which cost £4.
Once we were seated we were both very excited about what we were going to see. E was wowed just by being sat in the big top!
The show was mesmerising right from the moment it started. I don’t want to tell you too much as I don’t want to ruin the show for you. There are some amazing aerial acrobat acts.
E absolutely loved the trapeze act, there were lots of gasps and E she kept saying wow! The lady was very strong and very talented.
There was some impressive magic tricks and plate spinning. Awesome trampolining from Mr N and just lots of good old-fashioned fun.
Everyone loved MR N, he was funny, silly and interacted with the audience. He came out in between all the different acts and everything he did made people laugh and love him. E was and still is a huge fan of him, if you ask her what she loved about the circus she says everything but Mr N was so funny.
The Grand Finale of the show was amazing, it was called the Ring of Death and once the act started I could see why. I have never seen anything like it before. There were moments when my heart was in my mouth. I can see why they don’t allow flash photography in case it distracts the artists.
E seemed generally captivated throughout the whole show which was an hour and ten minuets. In fact I was enthralled by it too. The show was full of bright lights, music, sparkly outfits and amazing talented artists. All the performances were amazing. The show is suitable for all ages and has something that everyone will enjoy. I have never known an hour fly by so fast, we both wished the show was longer – we loved it that much.
Paulos circus is at Darts Farm until the 9th July so you still have plenty of time to go check it out. Show times are weekdays at 5pm & 7:15pm and Saturday and Sunday which are 2pm & 4:30pm. There are no shows on Monday’s, Tuesday’s & Wednesday’s. At only £7 a ticket any show, any time, it’s a bargain too. It’s a great family show, you certainly wont be disappointed.
Here is a sneak peek of some of what you can get to see.
