A trip to the circus promises old fashioned fun for all the family, with something to entertain kids of all ages. Circus acts can include anything from acrobatics and fire eating to juggling or magic - expect to find some creative storytelling and plenty of comedy thrown into the mix! There are travelling circuses which visit Perth throughout the year, like Cirque du Soleil and Circus Joseph Ashton, and when a big event like Perth’s Fringe World comes up you can expect to be spoilt for choice with a diverse range of international circus acts on display.

I took Master B (aged 4) along to two very different circus shows at Fringe World.

Le Aerial

Hosted in the Lunar Big Top at the heart of Fringe World’s Pleasure Garden in Northbridge, this high flying circus show was superb. Presented by Aerial Artists Australia on tour from Adelaide, the costumes and the quality of the presentation in Le Aerial were brilliant.

A small troupe of six flexible female acrobats were beautifully complemented and compered by a talented male lead singer to create a highly professional show. The pace changed throughout the show with upbeat rock 'n' roll tracks like Shake Rattle 'n' Roll and Rock Around the Clock kicking things off, before the show climaxed with an emotional rendition of John Legend’s All of Me, accompanied by a beautiful acrobat performing in an elevated basket known as a ‘bird cage’.

Le Aerial culminated in a spectacular acrobatic display in a birdcage.

Master B was stunned by the spectacular acrobats who danced and tumbled their way through a high energy production. His best quote of the day was “the ladies are so pretty I don’t even believe it!”

Circus Sonas

Our second circus show in Perth was Circus Sonas - also part of Fringe World but hosted at The Court in Northbridge this time. Master B was wowed with his first venture into a nightclub - the array of optics behind the huge bar seemed to blow him away before the circus show even started!

Circus Sonas was a very different sort of act - a father and son duo from Ireland who used great comedy timing and plenty of silliness to captivate the crowd in the cosy side room.

We were sitting within a meter of the stage and certainly felt involved in the show, especially when I became the subject of a little sketch which involved donning a whole pile of random hats while juggling continued around me! The show was fun, fast moving and dominated by juggling displays using an array of objects including books, hoops and hats. The strong partnership between young Logy and his dad, Martin created a great atmosphere and everyone went home smiling broadly.

When can I take my kids to the circus?
Circus shows usually last anything from 40 minutes to 2 hours, sometimes with an intermission. As soon as your little one has the ability to sit still for more than a few minutes, they are likely to enjoy a circus show.

Get there early!
Many circus shows do not have allocated seating so the best seats are taken on a first come, first served basis. Get there in good time to grab a good view, especially for the small people.

Who will enjoy the circus?
Circus shows span the generations - there’s something for everyone from spectacular acrobatics to magic and music.The circus is very accessible for all, with the cast of Le Aerial happily posing for photos with fans after the show.
