Aisling Children’s Art Festival presents a double bill extravaganza this coming Friday evening, October 26, at 7pm with Men in Coats and Kasper Jensen’s “Circus Machine”.

The two acts come highly recommend, and will undoubtedly entertain their audience.

The Circus show, by Kasper Jensen, is a high-speed juggling show with amazing tricks, physical comedy, illusionary mime and perhaps surprising volunteers.

Watch as the juggling props get a life of their own in a show where the magic is real…

He’s a playful character who combines excellent circus skills with public interaction and humour.

The second show, Men in Coats, was created by Michael Dow and launched onto the British stand up circuit by winning Hackney Empire New Act of 1999.

Amazingly, they sold out on their first Edinburgh run, followed by two national tours before returning to Edinburgh the next year selling out at the much larger George square theatre.

The following years have seen the Men In Coats travelling and performing in some of the biggest and most prestigious venues across the world. In 2006 alone, the MIC travelled to Germany, France, Austria, Thailand, Italy, Switzerland, Belgium, Holland, Denmark, Sweden, Greece, Turkey, Germany, Malta, South Africa, the Bahamas and Spain. As well as shows for British Royalty and celebrity worldwide.

Tickets for the show – on Friday next 26th October, 7pm - are available from festival booking office Ballymahon Street and Backstage Theatre. Further information about this years festival on Aisling Festival’s Facebook page.
