This is a sponsored post, I was gifted tickets to Paulo’s Circus in return for an honest review.
I can’t remember the last time I went to the circus, long enough that times have changed and the presence of animals is thankfully no longer a thing. When the opportunity arose to attend a show, and share our experience on the blog, Stu and I jumped at the chance. We decided to stay away from social media searches, and so we had no idea what to expect, we were excited! We weren’t to be disappointed!
We headed over on a sunny Saturday evening, to to find lots of parking, and the spectacular view of the pink big-top! I picked up our complimentary tickets* from the box office (having a nice laugh with the lady there, which is always a good start!) before joining the queue for a ten minute wait for the doors to open (at 7:30) and Paulo’s Circus – The Rockets Tour! We were greeted by the amazing scents of popcorn as we made our way through the doors, meeting the fabulous Mr N, who’s clowning around kept the audience amused throughout the evening!
We opted for a can of cold drink, and some popcorn, which was more than enough between us, and at £4 for both, we weren’t complaining, there was also beer and cider available, and hot dogs, as you enter the tent. The seating is open, but though fairly busy everyone had plenty of room.
The acts were brilliant, from the knife throwing act of Duo Vinkali Leo Steel, Paulo’s Circus’ own superhero!
The incredible high wire feats of Los Sanchez The breathtaking acrobatics of Melissa Carne The very talented Bruno A vibrant laser show, which was all kinds of awesome.
And Simon Deville who’s balancing act was literally nail biting!
At around 70 minutes long, the show has no interval, and is just the right length to keep younger viewers interested. We loved every minute, it was a fun, feel-good show, with enough blend of old school charm and an epic finale with a modern twist. We arrived with no expectations, and left wanting to revisit, and already have our sights on next years show!
Thoroughly recommended for locals and visitors of all ages! This really is a great evening’s entertainment, and it’s so affordable too! Should you wish to pay Paulo’s Circus a visit, which I would highly recommend! You can find it at Treloggan Road, Newquay (which is opposite Morrisons, TR8 4QB for those with sat-nav) up until the 7th September! Full details can be found on the website or Facebook Page, where you’ll also find discount vouchers, if £7 a ticket wasn’t affordable enough! They also offer free tickets to local emergency services and forces.
You can also find Paulo’s on Twitter and Instagram!
While I was gifted my tickets for the show, the opinions above are my own.
