Invisible Circus Summer Spectacular at Brunel’s SS Great Britain

Get ready to witness dare-devil aerial feats and astonishing acrobatic displays on board Brunel's historic SS Great Britain as the Invisible Circus commandeer the ship to tell stories of sea-faring life in breath-taking style.

Every day from Saturday 20th July to Sunday 1st September the Invisible Circus will take over Brunel's famous SS Great Britain, bringing to life stories of the Victorian dock workers, passengers and crew as they board the world's first ocean liner.

In a specially-created show, taking place five times each day (11am - 3pm), the performers will create death defying aerial displays as they fling themselves from the rigging, passengers precariously juggle luggage and the whole ship comes to life for the Summer Spectacular.

Also during summer, families can meet Mr. Brunel, get up close to objects from the archive and for those who are brave enough, climb the rigging 15 metres above the deck with the ship's Go Aloft experience!
The SS Great Britain is open every day 10am to 6pm through summer.
