Remember how much fun swinging on the clothesline was? The classic backyard Hills Hoist provides the stage for a journey of imagination in our own backyard.  

In a world first – ‘Hilda’ the custom made Hills Hoist inspired circus rig is ready to be unveiled to the public in a captivating all ages circus show. Under the Hill’s Hoist provides the perfect space for a backyard show – the type you’d put on for your family as children, bringing out the inner child in everyone and reminding us all that’s it’s OK to be silly, and it’s OK to have a laugh.  This show has something for everyone with live music, a fusion of slapstick, bad dad jokes, and sock puppets with a sprinkle of circus.

This event is part of ART HOUSE, an evening of intimate and spectacular performance set in a home turned maker space, with food and drink available throughout by donation. Your ticket guarantees you entry to the whole two-and-a-half-hour ART HOUSE program, and we strongly encourage you to come for the duration and experience the journey from the first work to the finale.
