It’s a rip-roaring romp for the whole family that’s not to be missed… A raggle-taggle band of highly skilled travelling circus performers embark on their most daring feat yet as they recreate Fogg’s famous adventures as he sets off on his race Around The World In 80 Days. But wait? Who is this Nellie Bly biting at his heels? We can’t have an actual real-life woman win this race! Sit back and enjoy as skilled performers traverse every country, embrace each character and navigate each mode of transport as fact clashes with fiction in this highly entertaining gallop around the globe. It’s an epic family adventure! We all know the name Phileas Fogg from Jules Verne’s novel Around The World In 80 Days, but what do we really know about the intrepid adventurer and his world-famous journey?
