The Revel Puck Circus is returning to Leyton Jubilee Park this month. Starting tomorrow, spectators will be able to enjoy The Wing Scuffle Spectacular: A Lion’s Heart show featuring moonwalking acrobats, and physical comedy at the tented show.

The two hour show, which runs until the 29th of July and is suitable for all ages, will see its acrobats somersault around a swinging chainsaw while 15 feet in the air.

The Revel Puck Circus last came to Leyton in summer 2021.

Circus-goers will also be able to order from a family friendly bar, serving drinks and snacks during the show interval.

Artistic Director Luke Hallgarten said: “We are so excited to be coming back to Leyton, it feels like home! Coming back for the first time since 2021 is a fantastic opportunity for us to show our community how we’ve developed since then. We’ve got an amazing second chapter of the Wing Scuffle Spectacular in store, with new and old faces joining us from Montreal, Sweden and Walthamstow.”
