The Carnivale of Colours has secured Mr Spin, Australia’s world renowned juggling performer, as a headline act at the St Columb’s Park event on June 25 and 26

Award-winning Mr Spin is set to be a crowd puller with “his ferocious energy and charismatic wit”. He was recently awarded the ‘People’s Choice’ prize for entertainment at the American Festival of Fools 2009 and he’s also the winner of the UK’s ‘Fool of Muncaster’ event 2010.

The family friendly event, whose artists include home-grown circus school talent, is being held this year in conjunction with the launch of the Peace Bridge on Saturday, June 25.

John Burns, Creative Director, said: “Carnivale of Colours 2011 is our biggest and best event yet. We are now able to attract high profile entertainers from all around the world.”

In Your Space was established ten years ago as a collective of freelance artists and circus performers – this is the festival’s fourth year.

John added: “This is an event for all the family, with big top shows, bands and more exciting day/night-time performances to be revealed. Now cityside dwellers will be able to walk over the Peace Bridge, from the town centre, to sample some of our entertainment at Ebrington and St Columb’s Park.”
