BUNRATTY is going to see the circus roll into town this weekend. Castle and Folk Park in Co Clare will host ‘The Big Top’ of Ireland’s national circus this weekend.

On Saturday and Sunday (June 15th and June 16th), the award-winning Fossett’s Circus is visiting the country’s most famous medieval castle and will feature the very best of international circus acts, including jugglers, aerial acrobats and dare devils.

Charlotte Rebers, Operations Manager at Bunratty Castle & Folk Park, said, “We are excited to welcome back Fossett’s Circus to the Folk Park. Circus goers will receive free entry to the Castle and Folk Park, which guarantees a fun-filled day out for families and people of all ages at our visitor attraction”.

Marion Fossett, the ringmaster of Fossett’s Circus has been carrying on a family tradition that has lasted for generations. “All of our performers and crew have very fond memories of our previous Bunratty visits and this year, we promise to put on an even bigger and better show to the people of Clare. Highlights of our circus include the Globe of Speed featuring FMX Stunt Motorcycle riders, The Wheel of Death, and the thrilling Flying Trapeze high in the roof of the Big Top,” she said.

Ticket bookings for Fossett’s Circus at Bunratty Castle and Folk Park can be made at www.bunrattycastle.ie/events. Each purchased ticket provides free entry to the Castle and Folk Park.

Shows will be staged at 1.00pm on Saturday and Sunday.
