Young people up to 26 years 50% discount
Circus is our greatest love. And we like to share that love with as many people as possible. Circolo has chosen to give adolescents, students and first-timers an extra welcome with a substantial discount. This year, young people up to 26 years of age will never pay more than €13 for a performance.
Why youth discount?
If the youth are the future, you have to take good care of them. Life in the city is expensive. Housing is unaffordable. Until 2021, it was only children under 12 who received discounts at Festival Circolo. Enthusiasm among young people for contemporary circus is there, but we understand that it is also a costly affair. But how much fun is it to go with your date or a group of friends to a never boring and always sensational show and afterwards plop down by the campfire with a drink between the circus tents?
What performances are cool for young people?
Every year, we are amazed at what circus artists can do with their bodies. Festival Circolo is extremely proud that we can welcome these artistic top athletes in Tilburg and watch them perform the craziest tricks in their bodies. Circus teaches us how outstanding the human body can be. These performances are of extra interest to the Young at heart:
