Theatre & Circus


Welcome to Theatre and Circus

We’re delighted to unveil the line-up for the colourful, vibrant fields of laughter, spectacle, pathos, and poetry that is Theatre and Circus. A place where you can move from fast-punching satire to breathtaking beauty in just a few paces. Where you will always find the unexpected, the unbelievable and the unbeatable. And there’s always the risk of being led astray by some wondrous creature or whimsical character. We are so pleased that performers from around the globe are able to join us in this grand celebration of everything that makes Theatre and Circus everybody’s favourite place to be.

About Theatre and Circus

Theatre and Circus transforms three fields at Worthy Farm into an unforgettable spectacle, with more than 1000 performers on stages running from 11am until the wee small hours. Here you’ll see jaw-dropping stunts, side-splitting comedy and cutting-edge theatre and circus. And a festival highlight for many – Glastonbury’s famous walkabout theatre acts will be out and about in the fields day and night.

Enjoy the hilarity and scenes of wonder or dive in a little deeper if you like. There’s interactive games, trapeze flying, late-night LED hoop twirling, juggling workshops, laughing yoga, slackrope walking, the crate stack challenge… the list goes on.  And of course our performers are always looking for brave volunteers to join them on stage!

From awe-inspiring circus acts to top UK and international comedians, spoken word artists and ground-breaking theatre, our fields are a tribute to the talent and creativity of our theatre and circus community. After two years with no festival, our artists,  performers and crew are ready to pull out all the stops to make this the best Glastonbury ever. We look forward to welcoming you to our fields.
