The Eden Project’s 10th anniversary show season featuring amazing aerial acrobatics, incredible circus stunts and beautiful live music has been thrilling crowds at its preview nights.

Labyrinth, devised and staged by the UK’s leading modern circus company NoFit State, opened last weekend (Friday, July 29) with preview performances.

Tickets are now going fast for the full performance season starting tomorrow and continuing every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday until August 26 with final shows over the summer Bank Holiday weekend on Saturday, Sunday and Monday, August 27-29.

The show features NoFit State's international performers on flying trapezes, aerial hoops, tightropes and bunjee cords. It's promenade-style with the audience taking in the spectacle on foot across the stunning Eden site.

Tom Rack, the creative producer for Labyrinth, said: “There’s something there for everybody – the visual spectacle and music, theatrical and dramatic elements and incredible circus talent. It‘s a full-on rollercoaster of a show in the beautiful setting that is Eden.”

Labyrinth performance nights are:

  • Tuesday 2 - Friday 5 August
  • Tuesday 9 - Friday 12 August
  • Tuesday 16 - Friday 19 August
  • Tuesday 23 - Monday 29 August

On Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays doors open at 6pm, performances start at 8pm and finish at 10.30pm. It’s on earlier on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays with doors opening at 4pm and performances starting at 6pm and finishing at 8.30pm.

NoFit State are also putting on circus workshops at Eden during the day from now until September 4. Visitors can try out hula hooping, juggling and Diablo as well as more complicated tricks such as unicycling, slack wiring and tightrope walking.
