Maxima Circus | 5 - 11 October

Presented by the 2019 AWESOME Festival

CATCH!  is an action-packed, interactive adventure for little ones, their families and their friends that uses balls, racquets and all things sporty to tell a story about a young girl learning how to play, make friends and overcoming her nervous fears about sport. Circus, theatre, and puppetry meet in this high energy, playful and imaginative take on our love of sport. The performers jump, roll, bounce and throw as they learn to look before they leap, whilst having a ball!
