Circus Maximus at the Udderbelly Festival sees 20 of the UK's finest circus acts compete for a £4,000 prize. Dazzling audiences with mind-bending physical skill and unexpected hilarity, the UK's first circus competition will be split into four rounds. The heats will see the acts provide a concoction of crackling circus in attempt to win audience votes. Who goes through? The audience decides. The finals then invite the top five acts to perform a new show that they've created especially for the competition. Judged by a panel of expert judges, the most impressive performers will be crowned the winners and claim the mega cash prize.
