    The Forum Norwich

    Last chance to see The Mechanical Circus!

    The Forum Norwich - 14 Jan 2019

    Time is running out to enjoy The Forum, Norwich’s latest family-friendly exhibition marking the end of its Circus 250 celebrations.

    Over 25,000 visitors have visited the free Mechanical Circus exhibition since its opening in December to operate the quirky automata and moving objects.

    Running until Sunday 27 Jan The Mechanical Circus is a wondrous playground including: clever mechanical toys, amazing animals, human wonders, optical illusions, the wonders of electricity and more. The exhibition celebrates the story of how scientists demonstrated their latest ideas and discoveries and ensures that science and technology continue to be fun for all ages.

    “There’s something about the circus that appeals to all ages and the feedback we’ve had has been phenomenal. It’s been a joy to watch families learning how the exhibits work and trying their hand at being a circus strongman! ” said Richard Fair, Events Manager.

    The exhibition is a collaboration between Rijksmuseum Boerhaave and Cabaret Mechanical Theatre and is supported by Norwich City Council.

    The free exhibition is open daily 10am-4pm in The Forum’s Gallery until Sunday 27 January.
