CircusFest celebrates the future of circus: daring and diverse, punky and poetic. 🎪🎟
From the spectacular to the intimate, the festival showcases the point where circus collides with theatre, dance, live art, film and even virtual reality.
Always innovating and evolving, circus has come a long way since its beginnings. 2018 marks the 250th anniversary of the invention of modern circus, by entertainment entrepreneur Philip Astley. His show was a hit, and a new art form was created.
Founded in 2009, CircusFest is London’s biennial international festival of contemporary circus taking place at the Roundhouse and partner venues across London.
For one night only, Junkyard Golf Club will throw open its gates to a thrilling Day of the Dead celebration, which will immerse revellers in a Halloween experience like never before.

Performers on the line up include jugglers, unicyclists, LED hoopers and The Magic Ball Man.
Junkyard Golf Club is teaming up with el Jimador to transform its crazy golf labyrinth into a Day of the Dead scarefest of pant-wetting proportions. 🎃
If you’re brave enough you can expect scare actors, magicians and circus performers, all bringing the Day of The Dead festivities well and truly to life.
Putters are invited to sip on a selection of Junkyard’s chilling cocktails as they wind their way round some of the creepiest golf courses this side of hell.
Thrill-seekers are invited to don their best skull faces, pick up a club and explore the horrors that be in this Day of the Dead golfing freaky fiesta.
Wayland, a mythical craftsman, challenges you to uncover a city transformed by imagination. Once a visionary smith sought by gods and kings alike, he now invites you on a journey of cryptic clues. On your adventure, you’ll uncover a legacy of ice empires, lyrical scents and frozen fiery cream. Solve his final challenge, and he might have something for you.
Wayland invites you on a trail of cryptic clues, to see if you can think like a maker. Your challenge is to carve the ice trail across London, inspired by creators from Victorian times, culminating at a crafty drinkery… one most fitting of your challenge. Demonstrate your ingenuity and perseverance to restore Wayland’s faith, and reclaim the legendary status of the makers. Don’t let him down: he has no time for idle minds. Succeed, though, and Wayland’s name shall grant you access to the legacy of ice empires, lyrical scents and frozen fiery cream.
Designed for teams of up to four people at £15 per person.
Interactive sound installation by Studio PSK. Originally commissioned by the Fashion Space Gallery, London College of Fashion and developed in collaboration with musician Reeps One, the installation is inspired by the inherent joy of using playgrounds as a child.
Taking the archetypal elements of a playground: swings, slides, climbing frame and combining them with advanced musical engineering, the end result is a landscape of playground activities transformed into a giant musical instrument.
The installation includes a timber framework, built recreating iconic playground pieces to an adult scale. Using conductive paint, tape and yarn to create MIDI triggers out of steps, slides and swings the structure will spring to life & evoke the joy of the playground under the archways of House of Vans London.
Throughout the run, this iteration will be accompanied by an array live performances where musicians will explore the structure as an instrument through experimentation and rehearsals in front of a live audience.
After successful shows at Art Basel Miami & Salone del Mobile – Fashion Space Gallery ,Studio PSK and Reeps One are…
The simple but magical formula for truly memorable night out is: great films, amazing spaces, lots of hot tubs and add water.

You can book a whole tub to share with six of your nearest and dearest, or you can buy a pair or more tickets to share with others and make a few new friends along the way.
Every tub has one of our delightful tub waiters, to service your every whim, need and desire (within reason).
