The Strongman – a Covid safe real life silent movie show

Roll Up! Roll Up! The Strongman’s back in town!

This silent-movie, circus-theatre show provides ‘fun for all the family’ with acrobatics, silent comedy, live music and a little bit of magic.

It has toured with great success in Europe and the UK, and is back on tour by popular demand.

The story involves an old-style travelling circus – The Smallest Show on Earth – that has lost its only act. The crooked Boss tells the young circus girl that she will be forced to quit if she doesn’t find a new Strongman.

So when a down-at-heel traveller arrives looking for a job, things are bound to go wrong!
