Bestival have announced they will be celebrating their 2018 theme of the circus with a performance by Human Cannonball: Rodrigo Perez. Bestival takes place at Lulworth Castle in Dorset between Thursday 2nd until 5th August 2018

Rodrigo Perez will be flying up to 25 metres through the air to entertain and astonish crowds, as one of the most remarkable feats that will be showcased at Bestival this year, in honour of the 250th anniversary of the first circus performance at Westminster Bridge. 

Bestival's organiser Rob da Bank had this to say regarding the announcement:

“in my other life as Ringmaster Robby I’m pretty darn excited about having a Human Cannonball flying across the Lulworth Estate in August. Rodrigo is the best in the business and will not disappoint. Watch ya heads!”
