Clowns and undertakers. Actors and tractors. Corpses and horses. Theatre and circus! Footsbarn joins forces with Pierre Byland and Cirque Werdyn, a gypsy horse circus, to bring you an evening of burlesque anarchy for the whole family. In a feast of live music and hilarious clowning, Sorry! takes place in a circus big top – as the undertakers hold a funeral and a family of gypsies arrive to celebrate a wedding all in the same place! Will we toast the bride or mourn the departed? The battle is on.

Footsbarn has toured every angle of the globe with its legendary tent. Its make-and-do, playful style has completely fascinated adults and children alike since 1971.
