There aren’t many things you can easily take both your children and parents to – and for the first five minutes of musical cacophony Limbo, it seemed, was not one of them.
But I shouldn’t have worried. For the next hour and a bit, three generations of our family sat transfixed as we watched in awe as circus performer after performed redefined what the human body can do.
And if that (and the sight of some very toned and very shirtless men) wasn’t enough excitement for the day, the afternoon was capped off by an emergency evacuation after the fire eater accidentally set the tent alight!
All of which means we have our six replacement tickets to what I can only describe as a quite extraordinary show to give away.
You must be able to get to London’s Southbank on Saturday (16th August) for the 4pm show – but, if you can, you won’t regret a minute.
This competition has now closed. Congratulations to Kate Warburton who is the winner of the six tickets and thank you to everyone who entered.
