After getting recommendation from our friends to see his show, even though we adults enjoyed it and took part, it’s really aimed at the age range of 8 - 14 in our opinion. I'm afraid the show is overpriced considering how short the length of the show is, if you’re thinking of taking the kids they will absolute enjoy it while it leaves a lot to think about for mumand dad, or alternatively look it up on YouTub and decide yourselves J

This is the first time we went to see this show (Adult + teenager) after getting recommendation from our friends. This show is very good for the age range of 8 - 14 in our opinion. Below and higher of those age range, this either can not make sense or can be boring. Additionally, we also thought that this show overpriced.

It was the second time I was seeing this show and even 4 years after my children were remembering it and were still so found of it ! My boy of 14 was for once really excited about going to a show ! Great and inspiring

2nd time of seeing, and eventhough knew what was coming was still magical. My 6 year old also enjoyed 2nd time around... Tickets would have been expensive if we had not taken advantage of Timeout special offer! And sitting in front row, as we booked so early, is always a bonus too. Would def recommend and see again. Just a small note though, I think the age of 5 years limit should be enforced, as there were a few scenes that were dark and scary before you knew what was happening, and the 'dry ice' engulfed the first 3 rows from the stage which was a bit frightenening for the little ones there, and they had to stand up and move until it settled!!

Great! Fabulous! There is a lot of fun in it for the kids and lot's of more serious stuff for the adults. Recomended it to all my friends and relatives.

And it's absolute joy for the kids while leaves a lot to think about for their parents.

Absolutely brilliant! Fantastic! Makes you laugh and think. Very profound. Is not for those expecting something like Benni Hill show.

My 9 years old daughter liked it but I was disappointed. Too short and too "adult". And too expensive of course! Plus I must say that Polunin hasn't changed his routine for last 25 years. I saw the part with a phone as a kid in Rusisia in 90ies.

Totally unorthodox mixture of mime and humour. The clowns had sufficient pathos to render their meanderings across the stage a promise of more fun later... and it came in shovelfuls of snowflakes and clouds of smoke. The special effects of a vast cobweb of frothlike material covering the shrieking audience and the final outpouring of hundreds of multicouloured balloons made the outing brilliant for ages 8 to 88 !
