The cafe is open. Find a table, grab a coffee and watch characters collide as they cope with the calamities of life. Witness fresh heartbreak, first dates, caffein-addicted business deals, a lost lizard and a chef trying to keep this circus together.

Pass the Sault is the perfect blend of acrobatics and medium roast high altitude organic arabica coffee beans, served fresh this fringe.
Just add Salt.

Friday 26th – Sunday 28th Jan
7:00 – 8:00pm


Deadly, Dirty and Dangerous

COMPLETELY MENTAL. Snatch and Grab is a radical circus car crash of dangerous juggling, drunken stunts and precariously balanced toasters.

★★★★★ “Exquisitely stripped-back circus … side-splitting humor” Out in perth 2019

A circus celebration of the fierce and wild. Snatch and Grab is a D.I.Y spectacle of absurd acrobatics, contorted comedy and household appliances.

Built by Snatch Circus, a fem-punk circus from Belfast, made up of award winning agents of chaos Angelique Reckless Ross and Mish Mash Thoburn, aided and abetted by Ken Fanning.

Friday 26th – Sunday 28th Jan
