The Theatre and Circus area at Glastonbury involves the transformation of three fields at Worthy Farm, with more than 1000 performances on stages both day and night.

The area is described as a place where you’ll see “jaw-dropping stunts, side-splitting comedy and cutting-edge theatre and circus”.

“A place where you can move from fast-punching satire to breathtaking beauty in just a few paces,” the Glastonbury website continues. “Where you will always find the unexpected, the unbelievable and the unbeatable. And there’s always the risk of being led astray by some wondrous creature or whimsical character.”

Other names on the line-up for Glastonbury’s Theatre and Circus fields include Adam Hills, Reginald D. Hunter, Elvis McGonagall, Dom Joly and Abandoman. You can check out the full line-up above.
