A brand new circus theatre show created especially for the Hexham Book Festival with a message of humanity, heroes and adventure.

CIRC Motif presents a bespoke circus theatre show which delves into the true essence of storytelling and invites audiences to create a world of our own. 

Set in a run down bookshop on the verge of bankruptcy, a family of storytellers work around the clock to keep up with the modern times. They’re in the story business and people don’t read books as much as they used to. In this unique circus theatre show the audience becomes enthralled into a world where anything can happen and with their help, they can save the business (we hope).

Commissioned by Hexham Book Festival with support from Arts Council England.

For all the family


Babes in arms go FREE (ticket required).
