They are standing against a black background, and the lighting highlights their serious but slightly confused expressions.

What to expect

Come along with the whole family to see organised chaos at this ‘smashing’ circus event.


'Those in Glass Houses' is a celebration of glass and all its fragilities.

Two of the most trustworthy jugglers in the UK take on a giant pendulum and a ton of bricks. With the assurance of protective eyewear, glass is kept safe in their hands. Brace yourselves for swinging bricks, comedy catapults and glass-shattering domino runs in this adventure of controlled destruction.


For over two decades, Matt and Owen have delighted audiences throughout Europe with their imaginative and often riotous exploits in the world of circus. They have juggled everything from apples and crockery to fish and now, glass. In addition to their on-stage expertise, Matt and Owen have taught in circus schools and led numerous community and school projects, passionately nurturing creativity and skill development.
