This show really is magical, it features singers, musicians, clowns and of course incredible acrobats. With tickets averaging around the £70 mark, audience members do get their money’s worth with two hour long sections and an interval in between.

The crowd were laughing, gasping and applauding throughout the entire show, in awe of the stunts and songs.

From gymnasts, to dancers and flying trapeze acts this show really does have it all. The acrobatic sequences are intertwined with a clown double act that feature throughout Alegria, with jokes that had both adults and children laughing.
