A series of spectacular circus stunts will be performed on – and off – Penarth Esplanade today including an apic high-wire walk over the sea
The stunts are being performed by the “No-Fit-State” Circus who have set up a high-wire stretching all the way from the Esplanade to the end of Penarth Pier – out over the sea.
At 13:00 and 14:30 today (Saturday July 15th 2017) Ellis Grover will be carrying out an epic high-wire walk from the foreshore to Penarth Pier. Ellis has already been carrying otu rehearsals for today’s stunts – and completed the walk safely.

The Falcons delivered an impromptu talk to visitors on the Esplanade instead.
