A mouthwatering Indian feast will be available from 6.30pm to add to the atmosphere. Following the performance, get your dancing shoes on for a bhangra disco.

Two workshops are on offer: an afternoon Circus Raj workshop for all ages at 2pm on August 20, £3 a person; and a morning Indian breakfast workshop with Circus Raj– learn how to make chapatis - on August 21 at 10am.
