Fossett’s Circus at Westport House

September 27, 2017 - October 1, 2017


This year Fossett’s Circus, the oldest continuously touring circus in the world, is delighted to bring our all new 2017 production to the people of Westport, our 5 Star Show ratings from customers on our Facebook page.

We feature the very best in international circus performers while presenting the incredible skills and daring of our own family members all in our unique style of circus show.

We are thrilled to include exciting and new circus presentations never before seen in this country.

NEW for 2017 include:

  • China the amazing Wang Dang on the aerial straps
  • The award winning Duo Vinkali from France with a skillful knife throwing act
  • “Pat & Pip’s Hot Dogs” these beautiful dogs will be sure to put a smile on your face
  • The death defying “Motorcycle on the Highwire”

In addition to the these thrilling extra performances, we will also present Illusion, Juggling, Aerial skills, Acrobatics, Diablo, Wild West presentation, beautiful horses and lots, lots more.

Throughout the 2 hour, fast paced performance our very own Clown Otto will bring his special brand of magic (and mayhem) to the show! A firm favourite with children and adults alike, Otto has promised us that he has a few new tricks up his sleeve this year. Our Ringmaster, Marion Fossett, will keep the whole show flowing as usual.

We are very proud of our 2017 production and we look forward to seeing old friends and making new ones as we tour the country for the 129th consecutive time.
