Spanning three weekends from 15 to 31 January, the Bread & Circus Backyard Buskers Festival will return to the circus capital of Aotearoa. This year’s street festival will showcase the best hand-picked, home-grown circus, comedy, music and acrobatic talent.
The line-up is packed with old favourites and brilliant new events. It includes a gala at the Isaac Theatre Royal hosted by The Topp Twins, performances from circus gurus Laser Kiwi and comic juggling sensation Fraser Hooper, and the ever-popular Kids Comedy Gala
A new addition are the Bread & Circus Garden Parties, giving Christchurch residents the chance to host a performance in their own backyard from the likes of the New Zealand String Quartet, and musician Troy Kingi.
Scott Maidment, Festival Director, said the 2020 pivot had been “rich with reward and learning”.
