The circus comes to the island this weekend

Mon, 17 Jun 2019

The circus is coming to town later this week.

The big top will be home to comedy, aerial acrobatics, fire, balance, juggling and other acts during what organisers describe as a ‘show for all ages’.

Astral Circus will set up in Milntown and will perform five one-hour shows on Saturday and Sunday as well as 90 minute workshops at 11am on both days.


Scarlett Bloom, Events and Marketing Administrator for the historical estate in Lezayre, explained: ‘We are so looking forward to welcoming the Astral Circus team. There really will be something to keep everyone entertained throughout their visit.

‘We are extremely grateful to the Steam Packet Company and it is a further demonstration of its willingness to work with others on the island who are providing a facility to both local people and visitors for the good of the Isle of Man.’

Milntown is run as a visitor attraction by a charitable organisation, with the Trustees putting all income generated back into conserving and maintaining the mansion house and grounds. The Steam Packet Company agreed to help with the transport costs when the Trust approached them.
