Guildhall Square will be transformed into a spectacular aerial playground on July 9, with circus imagery, breathtaking aerial and acrobatic skills, amazing pyrotechnics and inspiring live music in BARRICADE - a celebration of the mighty human effort needed to overcome the walls, barriers and obstacles we find, or place, in our path. Two trucks block Guildhall square. They disgorge their contents of wire and tyres, dividing the square in two, creating an obstacle to normal paths and daily routines. Suddenly, a storm is rising. People are building a barricade to defend themselves. The barricade they build, a spectacular aerial playground, sets the scene for a maelstrom of breathtaking circus images, powerful stories of separation and unity, dangerous acts of creation and destruction. A tightrope walker holds his megaphone aloft, a handful of acrobats climb never ending ladders, aerialists swing from impossible heights... NoFit State Circus bring their signature theatrical chaos to Southampton for one night only, brought to you by team behind 2009’s Midsummer Dreams and 2010’s Alive & Ablaze. This family event starts at 9.30pm and is FREE, but space is limited, so we advise that you arrive early!
