What’s On

Our line-up will be announced closer to the festival so keep an eye on our news pages and Facebook page, however we are sure that there’ll be plenty to keep you entertained! Each year PLaY has a range of shows, from an open show to a gala show, a fire show and usually a performance by a youth circus. We have hosted performers from around the world and showcase some of the most inspiring circus acts we can find as well as music, DJs, a chillout space hosted by Spinning@ with a cocktail night and plenty of games.

As well as the main entertainment we have around 130 workshops (almost all of which are included in your ticket price) so whatever your interest or skill level you’ll find something to do. In previous years we’ve had workshops in poi, staff, hoop, acro, slacklining, cigar box, contact juggling, clubs, unicycle, whips, aerial, yoga, philosophy, movement and diabolo. Final timetables will be published closer to the festival start.
