The circus is coming to town.

A free circus arts spectacular will be held at Sammy's Entertainment Venue in Dunedin this weekend.

"There will be hula-hooping, acrobatics, juggling, unicycling and even a live fire show at the entrance by Highly Flammable," production manager Logan Elliott said yesterday.

Circus in Circus will include the Twisty Twins, Jola and Nele Siezen, who appeared in the recent Otago Festival of the Arts production The Butler, and master of ceremonies, comedian Vinyl Burns (Kim Potter).

"They're all professional performance artists from New Zealand and Australia. We'll have about 15 performers from New Zealand and five from Australia," Mr Elliott said.

"Circus arts are becoming big in New Zealand. People are taking it a lot more seriously and they're getting a lot more professional about it," he said.

"It's completely free and will be a real family show. Anyone and everyone is welcome to come along and enjoy the fun."

The circus performance is part of the annual Circulation Festival, which will be held at Whare Flat from Friday to Monday.

More than 50 performers and musicians from the festival will attend the circus performance.

Circus in Circus starts at 7pm.

Admission is free.
