The Bellingham Circus Guild is excited to announce the return of its annual Valentine’s Day spectacular, “My Circus Valentine.” This delightfully unconventional Valentine show will run from February 10th through February 14th at the Cirque Lab in Fairhaven.
“My Circus Valentine” has been a Valentine staple in Bellingham since its debut in 2010. This year, Bellingham Circus Guild’s journey of the heart returns with a new collection of gravity-defying circus acts. Featuring stunning local circus artists Bellingham has come to know and love and dazzling guests new to the Cirque Lab stage, this show has a reputation for plucking heartstrings and making them sing! As a thrilling outing for friends and families or a hot date with a special someone, My Circus Valentine is for everyone.
“We’re thrilled to bring this beloved show back with fresh inspiration year after year,” said Anneka Deacon, My Circus Valentine’s artistic director. “As we continue emerging from the isolation of the pandemic, we all need each other more than ever. Our common human need for love and connection is what inspires the best art, and that is what this show is all about.” Everyone present is invited to be part of the experience. “We feature high quality circus acts that communicate something genuine and relatable through their performance, and the goal is for everyone present to take that journey together; to be moved, lifted, and expanded.” It is a lofty goal, born out of well over a decade of shows that have evoked both laughter and tears. “We have all loved, and we have all experienced the loss of something or someone we loved. My Circus Valentine is a place where a whole range of feelings can be explored, in community… with beautiful, hilarious, profound, and spectacular results.”
My Circus Valentine is a carefully curated experience intended to delight all the senses. This year, My Circus Valentine will feature four 21+ shows with a pop-up bar serving beer, wine, and limited cocktails. Three all-ages shows will feature special floor-seating for the littles. All shows will feature gorgeous concessions: delectable artisan-made chocolates, love potions, and much more by Morgan Sylvanrose. New, deluxe front-row table seating will be available this year at a special price that includes a bottle of wine (at 21+ shows only) or sparkling water (all ages shows only) plus special treats. These tables will be the best seats in the house, perfect for a double-date or friends’ night out. All other seating is general admission, and guests are encouraged to arrive early for the best seats.
The show has a limited run of only 7 shows and tickets are expected to sell out quickly. For those who are not able to attend in-person, livestream tickets will be available for the Saturday 2/11 shows.
