Cirqadia by Freefall is a contemporary circus festival taking place in Liverpool November 8–10.

This year is the pilot of a new annual event, which aims to raise the profile of Liverpool as a centre for circus arts.

This year is the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots and as queer circus practitioners and founders of Freefall, Nick Hunt and Barry Welsh have ensured a strong presence of queer performers at this year’s festival.
