The Amazing Flea Circus in a Suitcase at The Big Grill Festival

Date: August 20, 2023
Time: 12:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Location: Herbert Park, Dublin

Jay’s highly trained, teeny tiny fleas are ready to strut their stuff at The Big Grill Festival, Dublin. The Flea Circus involves feats of astonishing bravery and breath-taking beauty – acrobatics, trapeze, high wire and more. Jay has been bringing puppetry, magic and storytelling to children for over twenty years and is known for the TV series ‘Living with a Fairy’ on RTE Junior, adapted from his live show. He started the Amazing Flea Circus in a Suitcase to capture children’s imaginations and bring a historic form of entertainment to the children of the 21st century with his infectious energy and wit, and an all-star cast of talented fleas.


After a wildly successful event in 2022, Big Grill BBQ and Food Festival returns to Herbert Park in 2023, running from August 17th to 20th, where the very best Irish and international chefs, restaurants and barbecue experts come together to celebrate and explore the delicious challenges, skilful techniques, and pure magic of cooking over live fire. Once you’re all grilled out, live entertainment and Little Grillers children’s activities will give you plenty to do away from the food!
