The Spring Arts & Heritage Centre’s free family summer spectacular is back

The Spring Arts & Heritage Centre’s free, family summer spectacular is back and is heading to Emsworth this year.

Following last year’s successful event, they will be hosting a free family outdoor event at Emsworth Recreation Ground on Sunday 23 June.

Roll Up Roll Up! Is a circus themed festival for all the family and will include performances, workshops and music. The Spring’s award-winning Cafe will also be serving homemade snacks and drinks throughout the day.

Families will be able to enjoy the Playground of Illusions. Visitors will have the opportunity to explore, play and discover a wonderful collection of interactive toys that ignite imaginations and showcase the unexplainable.

Highlights of the summer spectacular include performances by The Band at the End of the World, an anarchic brass band musical clown show and Pif Paf’s famous traveling machines, The Submercycle and The Flycycle. Travelling Light Circus will also be bringing their magical Pendulum Wave Machine, which captivates all who watch its mechanical movements.

Roll Up Roll Up! is a wonderfully whimsical, circus extravaganza with a twist. It is not your traditional trip to the big top but will be steampunk-inspired and full of mesmerising mechanical experiences that many people won’t have seen before. It will truly delight audiences of all ages!”

Emsworth Recreation Ground has limited parking available so families are encouraged to use public transport or travel by bicycle or foot where possible.

Roll Up Roll Up! is part of The Spring’s outreach programme, Beyond the Walls, that aims to deliver creative events and opportunities to audiences across Havant Borough.
