First Annual World Circus & Cabaret Festival
November 15 - 7:00 pm - November 18 - 11:00 pm
Roll up, Roll up. It’s here. The First Annual World Circus and Cabaret Festival (WCCF) is taking place nestled among the picturesque hills of Daylesford.
To kick things off this year we have two stunning venues. Hepburn Spring’s iconic Palais which will re-open its doors on this very weekend for this very festival. The Palais has an overflowing program celebrating all things cabaret. From side show to burlesque and everything in-between. The venue has received more then a face lift with Richard Fanale at the helm. Richard has worked day and night for months to breath new life into the old girl that has to be seen to be believed.
The circus is coming to town with the first Big Top to appear in Daylesford in modern memory. Locals Sam Hryckow and Melody Webb recently bought a big top and the WCCF will be the venue’s christening. ’The May Wirth’ a Grand Dame of a tent, intimate in size but enormous in heart will play host to some of the hottest circus acts going around. The tent is named after Australia’s very own super star of the ring, May Wirth, who toured with Barnum and Bailey as a headline act and was the first person ever to perform both front and back somersaults on horse back.
