Duo Sifolinis: Nikolay and Ivan from Bulgaria perform inside the mesmerising and dangerous “Wheel of death”. A large rotating apparatus, on which our duo carry out synchronised acrobatic skills, while the wheel spins on his axle, rotating and bringing the daredevils up to 11 meters up in the air. This is “hearth in mouth” stuff, performed without any safety net or wires. Ideal for the thrill-seekers, can you watch without covering your face with your popcorn?
Emilion Delbosq is back! Yes! With his huge fan base at Funtasia, due to popular demand, we are pleased to announce that the Geek is back! Our cheeky, lovable chap is a hit with all ages. Mixing modern “geek style persona” with some classic and some hilarious new gags, amusement for all the family is ensured. This renowned Clown has performed and entertained the crowds of the most famous Circus in Europe, and he’s ready for a new challenge back on home turf.
Vesco, Malin, and Ivan form a troupe of exceptional thrill seeking motorbike riders. There is no reason to think that riding their bikes at super speed inside a 5 metre high metal sphere is easy, but we challenge you to keep your eyes open while they are crossing over and looping around each others’ path. It is reasonable to understand why their act is called “The Globe of Death”. The Globe of Death is an extreme show of motorcycles moving around inside a metal sphere weighing three tons, at speeds of up to 40 miles per hour. The Globe is specially designed and made by Ivan Ivanov (pilot) with several years of Globe experience. Malin Yovov and Vesko Leseva are the other members of the group with extensive experience in Motorsport. Full concentration, dedication and respect is the formula for success in every show.
Antonio Candela will entertain you and amaze you with his revolving aerial ladder, a fast-paced act that mixes danger with comedy. Prepare to witness prestigious fire breathing skills. Expect nothing less than goosebumps, when the Circus Ring will be illuminated by his fire whip-cracking and meters-high fire breathing. Like the old classic famous Circus entertainers, this fire act takes years of training: do not try this at home!
Elodie Rech is the daughter of one of the most prestigious families of French circus, going back for 5 generations. Since she was very young she has trained in numerous disciplines, and debuted in the ring at the age of 4 with her father and her uncle, as part of one the most famous clowning trio in Europe, “Les Kino’s”. During her circus career Elodie has perfected many different acts, which she presents with grace and talent. This year, exclusively for Circus Funtasia, she will amaze you with a breathtaking tight wire and hula hoop act.
Attila Fabian, from Hungary, here’s one for the ladies! This stunning and talented artist at home is a builder/ decorator, but we believe his real talent is in the big-top. Performing amazing hand balancing with control and ease, he can support and move his body in a stable, elegant, inverted vertical position, by balancing on his hands, 3 meters above the floor. His performances are simply breathtaking.
Lucy-Louise is a stunning famous UK aerial artist and dancer. High on the roof of the Big Top of Circus Funtasia, elegantly swinging to the beat of amazing soundtracks, she combines static and swinging trapeze skills, drops, holds and rebound lifts. A classic thrill act, performed by Lucy, which combines sex-appeal and power. An act that never stops to amaze adults and children.
Nia Nikolova Jones, daughter of the directors and first generation of circus family, is the youngest juggler in the UK with her own act! Nia is a huge suicide squad fan and loves her role as Harley Quinn. Her act is modern and fast-paced, as Nia juggles and rides on a Segway, she is only the second person in Europe to do so! This promising, beautiful, and talented young teenager leaves the audience on the edge of their seats, while inspiring the younger generation to approach the juggling arts with a touch of modern inspiration and contemporary soundtracks.
Felicia is a petite and gorgeous girl, but don’t let her fool you! She is powerful and elegant, while swinging by two suspended ribbons called “aerial straps”. By wrapping the strap ends around her hands and wrists, Felicia performs holds, twists, rolls and manoeuvres, requiring extreme strength and precision similar men’s rings in gymnastics.
Julio Nikolov and Tracy Jones founded Circus Funtasia in January 2013. It is a brand new and exciting venture for them. They have both managed shows for 12 years and thought that it was time to create their own show to take on the road. They say that it is scariest thing that they have ever done but that now they are the happiest that they have ever been.
They would like to thank all the artistes and staff for making Circus Funtasia’s first few years so special. Everybody has worked so hard, shown dedication and always maintained a positive attitude. This has all helped to create a show with incredible energy that has provided entertainment wherever it has been.

Alexandra Velikova, a family friend and an amazing dancer, artiste, and photographer, is also a top class choreographer, who choreographs our opening and finale. She also ensures the whole show runs immaculately, even down to the lights and music. We can’t thank her enough! Check out her Facebook page to see her amazing pics. Clicky McGhees
Finally Julio and Tracy would like to extend a special thank you to our family and friends for believing in us. “Build it and they will come” you said, how right you were!😀🎪
