A Victorian Summer Circus is coming to the SS Great Britain for the summer holidays.

Cirque Bijou will be entertaining visitors to the historic ship in Bristol, inspired by the Great Britain’s voyages.

Based on the ‘Crossing the Line’ initiation ceremonies performed by sailors to mark the first time one of their own crossed the equator, the spectacle will feature juggling and acrobatics.

Visitors can learn new circus skills with free, drop-in workshops on Brunel Square.
