Dublin City Council Launches New ‘Urban Circus’ Event at Meeting House Square

Dublin City Council has announced a new family-friendly event, ‘Urban Circus’, taking place in the city’s Meeting House Square, Temple Bar on Sunday, 28th May. 

The free, unticketed event will feature five recurring shows between 12pm and 6pm with performances from the Fanzini Brothers and Fidget Feet Aerial Dance Theatre.  

Speaking about the new event the Lord Mayor of Dublin, Caroline Conroy, said, “I am delighted to launch Dublin City Council’s ‘Urban Circus’ which promises a fun day out for families. We had a lot of positive feedback from the Outdoor Cinema Club event series last year so it is great to bring another free, family-friendly event to Meeting House Square for people to enjoy.” 

The Fanzini Brothers have been entertaining national and international audiences in street and circus performances since 1997. Fidget Feet Aerial Dance Theatre sprung to life in 1998 delighting audiences with indoor, outdoor, crane and vertical dance performances.

There will be face painting for children and families can enjoy refreshments from onsite food and drinks vendors. 

The Meeting House Square is an all-weather cultural venue that has previously hosted a variety of events including the family-friendly ‘Outdoor Cinema Club’ series and Culture Night events in September 2022, as well as concerts, street entertainment and is host to a food market every Saturday. 

The entry to Urban Circus on the 28th May is on a first come, first served basis, gates open at 11.30am and all are welcome. Please visit for more information. 

This event is organised and supported by Dublin City Council.
