— The Other Half Of The Balloon Mannies
The Award winning Mcflea Flea Circus, the only flea circus in the north east of Scotland!
Flea circuses date back many, many years. They were most successful in the 1600s when they were exhibited at Fairs and taverns and other public events. There are only a handful of performers presenting this type of entertainment worldwide.
Modern ‘Humbug’ Flea Circuses allow a great Fun show of the amazing abilities of these tiny yet mighty creatures.
Based on the theme of circus, our star Hercufleas and his other performers astound the audience with incredible feats of strength and skill. All through careful and patient training and discipline. (No animals are harmed in the training or performance of the show.)
The Ringmaster showman will lead the crowd through the events with entertaining music, silly situations, jokes and terrible puns. There may even be some escapes where the fleas have disappeared and must be out in the audience!
There will also be crowd interaction and lots of information being put across about these, now relatively rare, creatures.
There may even be a chance to buy a back scratcher at the end of the show!
Among the incredible feats you will ‘see’ the fleas perform are;
The lights on and door open,
The chariot parade round the ring,
The barrel roll,
The high wire with dumbells
The high dive and water splash
The flea cannon!
The flea circus can be utilised by having performances at set times during an event, or just as audiences gather round to see such a fascinating and unique event.
Shows normally last 15-20 minutes and audiences can be for 5 to 50.
The audiences are limited to the number that can crowd round the table with the suitcase containing the Flea circus. A tent or other cover is used in outdoor events
