A BRAND new show packed with stunts, comedy and family fun is set to perform in Llanelli for the first time ever. Circus Funtasia will be pitching its Big Top at the Parc Y Scarlets Car Park from Wednesday 16th until Sunday 20th October.

With high-flying acrobats, flame-throwing fire-eaters, and 360-degree motorcycle stunts, this ninety-minute show certainly packs a punch – and proves that the circus isn’t just for kids.

Circus Funtasia has gained a reputation across the UK for world-class stunts, and locals will not be disappointed. There is an eye-popping performance by two Tommy Shelby lookalikes with a taste for danger. The duo leap and handstand across the giant rotating ‘Wheel of Death’ holding onto their flat caps with plenty of heart-in-mouth moments.

The Globe of Death riders is guaranteed to impress the keenest petrol heads.

“Nothing beats the exhilaration of seeing several motorbikes riding at top speed upside down inside a metal cage, millimeters apart!” says Tracy Jones, Ringmistress.

There’s also fire-breathing, hula-hooping, and aerialists who drop spectacular heights from the roof of the Big Top. Plus, the UK’s only female ‘sky-walker’ defies gravity as she steps bravely across the clouds.

In a moment of calm, a spell-binding ‘adagio’ is told by a duo of gymnasts. Using a combination of dance and acrobatics, they tell a love story for a new generation.

The comedy character ‘The Geek’ is the star of the show. A cross between Lee Evans and Freddie Mercury, he enchants the younger members of the audience while still making grown-ups laugh out loud. He gives a big nod to Queen’s iconic rock anthems and transforms the Big Top into a stadium performance.

“You’re hard pushed to find a better bang for your buck at Circus Funtasia” adds Tracy.

Consistently high quality acts combined with a seamless modern style and a great soundtrack, make this circus stand out as one of the best in the UK today.

With group tickets from only £30 for four people, you can’t go wrong.

Look out for the cheeky Cirque du Vulgar in the Big Top on Saturday night too, when the cast dons their risqué outfits and performs an entirely different show for over 18s only.
