An enchanting circus fable that will mesmerise audiences of all ages.

Enter the forest, get lost in the tree tops and discover a whole new world.

Freely inspired from Italo Calvino’s novel “The Baron in the Trees”, this thrilling circus show will enchant you and amaze you, taking you somewhere between the ground and the sky, reverie and reality.

Above is a playful, romantic fable, following the life of Cosimo who at 12 years old rebels against his family and climbs a tree in protest at being forced to eat snails, vowing that his feet will never touch the ground again. He spends the rest of his life in the trees, has adventures with bandits and pirates, explores the forest, falls in love, and watches the revolutionary ideas of The Age of Enlightenment unfold beneath him. With high flying aerial stunts, amazing acrobatics, stunning visuals, and fun physical comedy, Above is a rich theatrical experience for the whole family.

Big Top in the Park takes place at Prince’s Park, Irlam (Liverpool Road, M44 6BR)
