Duffy’s is one of the world’s longest-established circuses, amazing family audiences across Northern

Ireland over three centuries.

The new show blends the traditional and the 21st century. Acts enjoyed by generations of circus-goers are brought right up-to-the-minute with a spectacular light show, state of the art sound and expert choreography.

With the glamour of elaborate hand-made costumes, glittering lights and stunning special effects, you’re sure to be astounded by Tom Duffy’s.

Lovers of traditional circus acts will roar with laughter at the antics of the hilarious clowns, David and

Raffy.

Those who attend will also see Tom Jnr and Jamie Duffy take to the air with a heart-stopping wheel of death – one of the most dangerous acts in modern Circus.

Thrill seekers will be delighted with this years show – The Flying Paraizo are making their first visit to

Northern Ireland all the way from Brazil and Hungary with one of the world’s most amazing Flying Trapeze acts – these fearless flyers attempt not only the legendary triple somersault but also the daring double passage – two flyers in the air at the same time.

Tom Duffy’s troupe of horses and ponies return to the ring with a sparkling display and in a new Canine Review, the loveable giants, the St Bernard dogs, tend to dominate the ring but it’s the cheeky miniature poodles that raise a smile with their mischief.

The Guinness Book of Records champion strongman, Denis Ilchenko will astound audiences with his amazing feats of strength – holding the weight of five adults at the same time, then having a two and a half tonne van drive over his chest. Denis can also pull this van, only using his teeth!
