Ernie’s Journey

TICKETS: £25: Family, £10: Adult, £6 Child/Concession

Ernie’s Journey is a magical circus theatre adventure for family audiences. The seamless integration of circus, physical theatre, stage magic, poetry and puppetry is a truly dazzling spectacle. 

An original live harp score takes the tale from the dreamy realms of distant shores to the most raucous sea shanties! 

This show is particularly enchanting for 4-11 year-olds but the high-skill circus will amaze audiences of all ages.

It felt like nobody really believed in Ernie and sometimes he wondered whether he even believed in himself. 

He discovers that being himself and following his own dreams can lead to all kinds of wild adventures, but it is the people we love who make it all worth it. 

This show has been designed to connect audiences with the waterways around where they live and how they feed into national and international ocean systems.

As well as the performance, we are holding the circus skills workshop and bubble workshop (included in the ticket price)!

“Ernie’s Journey was brilliant! Full of magic, salty tales and a warming story of friendship to boot. My five-year-old loved it so much that he asked to go back to see it again tomorrow!”

Nick White - Wassail Theatre

“The children really loved this performance! They squealed with laughter at the jokes and were wowed by the circus skills”

Sarah Peterkin - Take Art
