Following on from the success of last year’s Cirque de la Quirk performances at the The Isle of Wight Festival – Cirque is back for 2016 and this time for the whole weekend.
Over the weekend of 9th-12th June, festival-goers will get the chance to step into a worry free nonsensical world. From body painting to their popular dance off, there is something for all ages at the Circus.
You’ll be able to experience the Backstage Creation Tent, aimed at relaxing and resting by relaxing on bean bags or pillow pits or getting involved with colouring therapy, creative workshops and face painting. Head to the Wonky Races Tent to spice up the weekend with silly, challenging and competitive games, before heading to their pièce de résistance: ‘Main Stage’. Compered by Cirque’s very own Jackie Jibbles and Madame Molly, Cirque de la Quirk will have musical treats to get everyone dancing for the whole weekend. Electric Swing Circus, Dub Pistols, Benny Page, Far Too Loud and Freear (Slamboree DJ set) are just a few of the artists lined up to grace the Cirque, along with circus performers from the wonderful people at Forgotten Circus.
Plus, to celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday and Queen + Adam Lambert’s headlining slot on the Festival’s Main Stage on Sunday, Cirque de la Quirk will be hosting a special tongue-in-cheek, very English but slightly rowdy tea party. Think bunting, chaps with moustaches and electro swing beats provided by Cirque’s lovable favourites, Miles Metric and the Rumpsteppers.
