Le Haggis

A perfect balance of circus and ceilidh, this entertaining and talented troupe bring Le Haggis, a show that guarantees to have you clapping along in your seat. With jaw dropping routines and beautifully performed songs, Le Haggis is a show that delivers.

.There isn’t a moment of boredom.

The show spices up the usual material that circus has to offer and doesn't solely revolve around the showcasing of different acts. In fact, Le Haggis offers a variety of talent but it is embedded within the culture of Scotland that incorporates chanting and patriotism. I'm not Scottish, but I felt completely absorbed and captivated by the inspiring music.

The routines are not compromised within this show and it never fails to deliver. Ranging from silk work through to acrobatics, there were moments where my stomach dropped and times where I was too engaged to even applaud. All the circus acts show immense talent and the musicians match this.

Wisely positioned at the back of the stage, live music complements and injects life into the performances and lends itself perfectly to the transitions. There isn’t a moment of boredom and this is further enforced by the leader of the pack, fully dressed in leather attire. His energy is infectious and is maintained solidly throughout.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD

Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
