Arnolfini - est 1961

As part of Circus City Festival, innovative circus company Upswing (in partnership with Stratford Circus Arts) present this fantastic family show at Arnolfini.

Celebrate that special time before sleep when bedtime stories are told and imagination and dreams take hold.

Tucked up with your family and friends in a bedroom installation, innovative circus company Upswing invite you to unwind and be dazzled by circus, theatre, dance and projections as they sweep you up on a magical journey.

Suitable for the whole family, Bedtime Stories encourages us to take time out of our busy lives and explore the connection between carers and children, work-life balance and managing priorities within the family.
