Come one, come all to the fun-filled show: Circus Fergus! This highly interactive show is packed with family friendly gags that will keep everyone laughing, young and old. Be amazed at the incredible juggling skills, juggling up to 5 torches, and his speciality: juggling with his feet! Wow! Topping it all off is an unmissable Grand Finalé and dangerous display of divilment on top of a Giant Unicycle. You gotta see it to believe it!
Mojo Creations Origami Demonstration and Workshop
At the bottom of a garden, under the moonlit shadow of a great oak tree… covered by a curtain of dew kissed moss hides a secret door that few can see. A knock knock twice, send your wish to a star…the door shall open wide, leading to a world from afar. Uncover a world made of paper, filled with magic and surprise, sprinkling magic before your very eyes.
George Dempsey Flanagan is the 'Maker of Magic’ behind Mojo Creations (as seen on RTÉ One’s Dragon Den). Based in Birr, Co. Offaly, George's true passion is creating and teaching Origami combining his skills and training as an artist and graphic designer with 'the Art of Japanese Paper Folding'.
'Through my work with local events, school projects and festivals I've become passionate about sharing the magic of making something with your own hands and inspiring that joy in others. I look forward to sharing my handmade Origami design products with you - a fusion of Origami Paper Craft and artistic design with the magic of imagination.'
