Did you know, the world first met The Very Hungry Caterpillar in 1969?! The Very Circusy Caterpillar is a little cheekier, a lot more peckish and much more circusy! Inspired by this classic children’s storybook, this fun and interactive show sees our ravenous friend take to the stage to juggle plums, hula-hoop fruit and tell a few silly stories that will have your little one in fits of giggles. It’s the perfect show for your child’s first experience of live performance and is sure to induce a little nostalgia for the adults.

All the way from Australia, this is the premier season for The Very Circusy Caterpillar in the UK. First appearing at the Adelaide Fringe Festival in 2011, the show has toured to some of Australia’s most diverse festivals in some of the most remote parts of the Australian outback. It returned to the Adelaide Fringe in 2018 where it received rave reviews and was named one of the best circus shows for children currently on the Australian circuit. The Very Circusy Caterpillar is sure to entertain and delight.

'Many circus shows aimed at very young children often feature performances that, to a jaded reviewer, aren’t actually that impressive but this is a showcase of several routines that could be transplanted into any high-quality evening show. If you have little ones then you should definitely take them to this show. If you don’t have any children, then you should go see this show anyway; you’ll have a great time and you might even see a butterfly.'

'"I couldn't do that" gasps one four-year-old, as his jaw drops, eyes wide. But the best trick is the flying finale, from the beautiful butterfly. Young children were mesmerised and adults entertained by the cute and cuddly critter, born to perform and transform in a marvel of metamorphosis.'
