The finale features the Flight of the Dare-Devil Dove. Our feathery friend relishes challenges of an extreme nature (nobody really knows why, and she won’t tell us). Marvel at our maritime maties with their nautical extravaganza of eccentric experiments, sensational circus skills, and hilarious feats of derring-do.

NORTH TYNESIDE STEEL BAND

The Giant Chefs are a truly wonderful, entertaining, and very interactive stilt walking double act, who captivate audiences wherever they go.

DARYLL ‘THE COMEDY JUGGLER’

A brilliant street circus performer, marvel as Daryll showcases his juggling talents. With lots of mad-cap antics and audience interaction this ‘Comedy Juggler’ is guaranteed to bring smiles to faces.

BELL & BULLOCK – ALL AT SEA

The debonair Captain Monty Montague pilots his luxury cabin cruiser whilst towing his gorgeous water skiing wife Minty. Join them for a spot of tiddler fishing from their offshore tax haven and take care not to end up as catch of the day yourself! Enjoy a relaxing swim as they sell you the “high life”, but beware of the shark infested waters where dark and dangerous sea creatures could creep up on you at any time…
