International highlights include:
- Norway’s Captain Frodo – who has been travelling the globe since he was 4 – what he gets his body to do is mind-boggling, 10 July – 6 August
- Paul Dabek (UK), one of the top UK magician with a twist, 10 July – 2 August
- Mario (USA), Queen of the Circus, one of the world’s top juggling artists who believes he is Queen’s Freddie Mercury, 10 July – 6 August
