Shame I am still waiting for a response from boomtown about not refunding the eco bond 2x£10 teenage tickets that turned up on the Monday to collect a bag of rubbish each to do their part. How many emails do I have to send 😡😡😡😡

Mark Stephenson you weren't impressed when you first turned up lol

Edward Little

We're cooking up something exciting... 👩‍🍳

You may have seen us announce a new concept and show, 'State of Emergency', via our trailer earlier this month... but what is it!?

Curated by our production and theatrical teams as well as circus troupes from across the world - the Boomtown story will unfold throughout the all-new shows which will play out across three of our main stages...

Get ready for a high-energy, theatrical spectacular of circus and performance which will come together with boundary-pushing sound design, technology and special effects to create a 360-degree experience... Bigger than any project we've ever embarked on, this will be unlike anything you've ever seen before! 🤸‍♀️💥
