The Eden Project is giving visitors to the Royal Cornwall Show a sneak preview of its summer circus spectacular.

Visitors to the Wadebridge showground will get to see circus skills demonstrations, a preview of Eden’s tenth anniversary show, Labyrinth, and get a free Labyrinth transfer tattoo.

It’ll be a taster of what’s to come at the Biomes throughout this summer holiday, with free circus skills workshops during the day and an amazing show in the evenings performed by critically-acclaimed circus company NoFit State.

Also on offer at Eden’s Royal Cornwall Show stand (number 72) will be tips on growing your own vegetables, music and the opportunity to find out about the Eden Sessions summer gigs and the Green Talent programme. Eden’s Big Green Bus is the unmistakable centrepiece to the stand.

Special discounted tickets for Labyrinth and the Sessions are also on sale.

On Saturday, Eden will be sharing this stand with the Energy Saving Trust, a non-profit organisation that provides free and impartial advice on how to save energy.

Elsewhere on the showground visitors have the chance to sample a selection of Eden and Sharp’s Brewery’s tasty ales. Stand 149 features the “ultimate beer garden”, showcasing the fruits of Eden’s collaboration with Sharp’s, including the new summer ale Honey Gold. There are also outdoor games and Eden goods for sale.

Yesterday, the show judges gave the stand second prize in the large non-agricultural trade stand.

The Royal Cornwall Show is open until Saturday (June 11). For more information see www.royalcornwallshow.org. For more information on the Eden Project see www.edenproject.com.
