The Out There International Festival of Circus & Street Arts has just finished its eight edition and was as fantastic as ever. A big thank you to to all our volunteers who helped the whole festival go off without a hitch; whichever body of law decided the weather; our fantastic performers from across the globe and our partners and funders who helped make Out There 2015 one of the most memorable to date.

Of course, we extend our warmest thanks to all those who enjoyed the entertainment. Without your enthusiasm and support, The Out There Festival would not be as impressive as it is today. Each year you leave us your opinions, thoughts and praises about the festival and they help us improve. We thought this year we’d highlight some of the fantastic words you have given to us.

“Had a great time! All the performers were awesome, fantastic costumes, lovely food and refreshments… This was a weekend I’ll remember, looking forward to next year!”

“I just wanted to say that I really loved this festival, especially Boom Productions and Barada Street.

Boom’s piece was incredible – moving, funny, profound! My kids loved the acrobatics and the masks, characters and humour, and responded to the edginess of it – going to scary places in a way that Roald Dahl does, without frightening or patronising children – and loved the slack rope walking.

Barada Street’s piece was so life giving, simple and life affirming! The way they involved the audience and improvised was brilliant and uplifting. My children were laughing the whole way through and I was lifted by the whole show. Wonderful! There should be more of this in the world!”

“I would just like to let the organisers know about how very impressed I was with the events held for The Out there festival held at the weekend gone in Great Yarmouth.

The acts that were on were brilliant and my children very much enjoyed this.

I would also like to thank one of the security team… I didn’t get her name, who helped my daughter when she fell over and was fantastic in reassuring her that she was going to be ok.

We are looking forward to attending the event next year.”
