The inaugural TORTUGA festival is set to hit Port Macquarie over the June public holiday from 10th- 19th June 2022. The incredible lineup of circus, music, cabaret and comedy shows will take place in the beautiful art deco venue, the Aurora Spiegeltent. Audiences can expect a variety of performances including the multi award-winning Head First Acrobats and an evening of music with the darling of ABC Jazz (and formerly of Playschool fame), Monica Trapaga.
In addition to the show programme, there will be outdoor, roving performances and community workshops.
The festival is curated and produced by local boy done good and 13 times Guinness world record holder Gordo Gamsby, who has travelled the world performing in the circus as a strongman and sword swallower. He met his circus performing wife, Lucy Frost (originally from the UK) whilst performing in Western Australia six years ago. After travelling the world they have settled back in Port Macquarie and now have a son, Spike (aged 2). They want to share the fantastic experiences they have had at international, major arts festivals with the community here on the Mid North Coast.
Ticket prices from $40 for adult performances and from $25 for family shows.
