The 2017 Alchemy Black Country festival kicks of on Saturday May 20 with two superb performances by Circus Raj
Performing breath-taking acts of courage and bravery – preserved over many centuries from the time of the Maharajas – their new show takes this ancient, mystical and magical circus format on to even greater heights.
Circus Raj’s cast of dancers, illusionists, aerialists, acrobats and rope walkers, with the eye-watering displays by their fakir, present a colourful, vibrant, fast-moving extravaganza of intrigue, drama, feats of daring, music, laughter and surprise.
The event is free for children and £5 for adults
