Circus @ Bournemouth Opera House
On boxing Day i was invited to perform at Bournemouth Opera House for a night called Circus. It an amazingly beautiful venue with some great history! I did 2 shows there, one on the hoop and one on the silk.
The Opera House located in the Boscombe district of Bournemouth, is now one of Bournemouth’s most successful and largest nightclubs. It has a long history dating back to it’s opening on 17th May 1895, and was used as a circus/theatre.
In the late 1960’s the building was reincarnated as a music venue and saw acts such as Pink Floyd, Status Quo, Led Zeppelin, Thin Lizzy, Hawkwind and David Bowie. In the 1980’s saw the revolution of the discothèque and the Academy Nightclub was born with a multi million pound refurbishment.
