A wide range of circus acts and street performers are coming to Sydney this weekend for the annual Hoopla Festival.

Sword swallowing, aerial acrobatics, fire breathing and family-friendly comedy are just some of the attractions on offer as part of Sydney’s Hoopla Festival this Easter weekend.Brits heading down under on flights to Sydney are encouraged to check out the free shows on offer from April 22nd to 26th as part of the city’s only circus and street theatre festival.

Highlights of the five-day event include the physical theatre group Ivory Tower, who will perform acrobatic dance on an eight-metre high scaffold, while the Circus Playground is offering juggling, plate spinning and stilt-walking lessons.

Live music fans are encouraged to catch the Big Swing Brothers Big Band & Miguel in the Big Top Hat tent, as this act will be accompanied by an eight-piece band.

If the day’s free acts leave you crying out for more, then you can see the street performance showcase at 6pm local time for $10 (£6.50) or the best circus troupes at 8pm for $15 a ticket.
