THE DIRECTOR'S

TRACY JONES!

Ringmistress Tracy Jones ran away to the circus at the age of sixteen as a groom for trick ponies. She soon moved onto looking after more exotic animals, and developed her own act on the Corde Lisse (aerial rope). After a successful career as an aerialist she fell in love with an  acrobat, Julio and together they set up Circus Funtasia 2013. “Build it and they will come” they were told, and they haven’t looked back since. Nowadays Tracy remains in the limelight as a Ringmistress.

JULIO NIKOLOV!

Along with Tracy, Julio is the Director of Circus Funtasia. He takes care of everything from setting up the tent to making sure the show goes smoothly every day, always with a smile on his face. Originally from Bulgaria, Julio started acrobatics at a young age and spent years performing in and leading his own troupe.

WHAT'S IN THE SHOW

EMILION DELBOSQ!

Emilion Delbosq ( The Geek)

This cheeky chappie is loved by fans across the UK. Emil is known as ‘The Geek’ due to his funky glasses and goofy appearance, and because he’s a huge comic book fan. Able to charm the little ones as well as make grown ups laugh out loud, he’s a versatile performer with comedy, magic , slapstick and musical talents. Making people laugh is what he enjoys doing most.
Most likely to…be outwitted by his son, aka mini geek!

ELODIE RECH!

Coming from the famous French family Kino, Elodie has many tricks up her sleeve. This year she performs her high-energy hula hoops act. 

In her spare time Elodie loves to draw and is a very talented artist. She brings creativity into every performance and this year she has been inspired by tango and burlesque.

Most likely to…beat the boys at lifting weights.

NIA NIKOLOVA JONES!

As the daughter of Tracy and Julio, she lives and breathes Circus Funtasia! She’s definitely got her own identity as a performer and always brings the latest music and style into her acts. Since being the youngest juggler in the UK with her own act, to being the first juggler on a segway, she’s constantly pushing the boundaries. Nia has also been delving into web design (she made this site) and enjoys creating content for social media. Check out her insta @niajones356

Most likely to…miss her alarm clock.

ANTONIO CANDELA!

Antonio always had a taste for danger. Growing up in a circus, he started fire breathing when he was eight years old (don’t try this at home – if you value your eyebrows!) He mastered many aspects of comic performance including the comedy ladder. Antonio graduated from Nottingham Trent university in Graphic Design and loves to create new designs for Circus Funtasia Posters and graphics.
Most likely to…play pranks on the rest of the company.

LUCIA CANDELA!

Lucia started as an acrobatic gymnast at her grandmother’s gymnastics club in Norfolk as soon as she could walk. She competed internationally, even performing at Disneyland Florida, taking her first professional job as a circus artist aged 18. She also runs her own circus school in Spain. Recently Lucia became a mum and returned to work at Circus Funtasia so her daughter could live the freedom and excitement of circus life before starting school.
Most likely to…be eating chocolate and watching Netflix.

ATTI & FELICIA!

This couple from Hungray met whilst they were working in a circus in Europe. They perform a beautiful hand to hand (also known as an Adagio). After successful solo careers this is the first time they have performed together as a couple. They have chosen adagio because, traditionally, it tells a love story. Felicia also performs her incredible straps act, which requires years of strength and training.
Most likely to…have a backstage nap.

NIKOLAY & IVAN

Together these daredevil Bulgarian best friends make up Duo Sifolinis on the Wheel of Death. Since they started performing together seven years ago this duo have won many awards across the world including Edinburgh first international circus festival. This year they,ve discovered their dark side and have been inspired by Birmingham gangsters, dicing with death.
Most likely to…Try out the latest adreninaline fuelled circus tricks.

ROSEY DELARUE!

From a background in musical theatre, Rosey trained at the Academy of Circus Arts and fell in love with circus and the Big Top lifestyle. Since joining Circus Funtasia she has been inspired by Ringmistress Tracy Jones to learn the Corde Lisse (rope), and by Jane Delbosq, who trained Rosey in the Sky Walk. This year she unveils her debut solo act, becoming the only female Skywalker in the UK today.
Most likely to…Fall over and walk into things.

GLOBE OF DEATH . EU

These crazy bikers continue to turn people’s heads with their gravity-defying motorbikes. Travelling at speeds up to 40mph inside the terrifying Globe of Death, this act is not for the faint-hearted. This year there are a few surprises in store as some of the bikers reveal their true identity under the helmet.

Most likely to…Never dress up for Halloween.
