Fundraising for Circus In The Park

Gasworks Arts Park is looking for the generous support of individuals to donate towards the production of Circus In The Park, brand new and exciting outdoor circus performances in our parkland during Summer 2022. 

From the creators of Circus Under The Stars successfully staged in January 2021, Sunset Circus and Champagne Cabaret will delight audiences.

Please support the creation and development of these new circus performances by giving a tax-deductible donation to help us deliver this quality artistic program.



Sunset Circus

Sunset Circus’ is a spectacular sun-soaked circus cabaret show for the whole family featuring some of Australia’s finest, award winning circus performers and hosted by the irrepressibly funny, Mason West.

You will be amazed at the feats of strength shown by the aerialists on the silks, wowed by the grace of the spinning wheel queen and blown away by the balancing maestro as he hangs-10 on the most impossible of objects.

Get ready to soar to dazzling heights with all the artists, in this socially distanced ‘COVID-Safe’ Open-air theatre.

A full hour of beachy circus entertainment for the young and young at heart, with the majestic summer sky as the backdrop.


Champagne Cabaret

Champagne Cabaret' is an adults-only cabaret show featuring some of Australia’s finest, award winning circus and cabaret performers and hosted by the always effervescent Valerie Hex, of YUMMY the show fame.

You will be blown away by the grace and strength of the stunning aerialist on the trapeze, charmed by the sublime vocals of the songstress, wowed by dexterity and speed of the hula hooping queen, and smacked in the face by the sheer charm and brilliance that is Valerie Hex.

Grab your glass of bubbles and get ready for a full night of entertainment and frivolity with all the artists, in this socially distanced 'COVID-Safe' Open-air theatre.

Champagne Cabaret is a big joyous toast to the long summer nights, an evening under the stars that you won’t want to end and will remember long after the final glittery bow.


Why We Need Your Help

Staging performances outside utilises the park which is particularly relevant as we move to a  Post-COVID world, offering fresh air, social distancing, and an opportunity to enjoy an uplifting and enjoyable activity outside of the home.

But we need your help with making these productions a reality! Due to the nature of these outdoor performances, there are additional costs involved such as equipment hire, freight charges to bring the rigging onto site, specialist technicians and rigging staff.

As such, we are looking to raise $10,000 to assist with the delivery of this fantastic community event. We are encouraging small donations of $20 - $50 to assist with making this production come to life, but all donations are appreciated and any amount over $2 is completely tax-deductable.

We hope to share this amazing experience with you in the summer of 2022, so stay tuned with the latest updates on our progress by subscribing to our monthly e-news here.
