Join us this autumn as we bring our most spectacular show ever back to the stage!

When Philip and Patty meet, they both know their lives are about to change. As the couple begin their adventure together, they are unaware that they will become the legends of one of the greatest stories ever told…

This is the story of Philip Astley, local town hero from Newcastle-Under-Lyme who became the international impresario that invented Circus – the spectacular phenomenon that captured the hearts of millions of people all over the world!

Astley’s Astounding Adventures is filled with fast-paced action, laugh-out-loud humour, gripping drama and breath-taking circus spectacle.

Revived to coincide with Newcastle-under-Lyme’s 850th anniversary, this is a bold, colourful celebration of a local hero that you won’t want to miss!
