Timber! at the Southbank Centre

  • Category: Music & Theatre
  • Dates: Wednesday, 10 July 2013 to Wednesday, 31 July 2013

The Southbank Centre will be hosting a raucous lumberjack-themed circus performance called Timber! from July 10th to 31st 2013, courtesy of the Canadian troupe Cirque Alfonse.

Featuring an entire family of talented performers - ranging in age from two to 66 - Timber! blends standard circus thrills with theatre, dance, live traditional music and the folklore of the stars' native Quebec.

Audiences will be able to marvel at amazing feats of strength and agility as they watch the various members of Cirque Alfonse balancing on logs, juggling axes and carrying out thrilling tricks using metal saws.

This production has won rave reviews in Canada and is coming to the UK for the first time this summer.

Lovers of the more physical elements of theatre could choose to attend this show while enjoying a Billy Elliot the Musical package at The 41 Hotel.

This offer includes two tickets to the ballet-themed West End smash hit, plus a pre-theatre dinner, a signed programme and a special Billy Elliot-themed turndown.
