Place des Anges

Do you remember when, in 2012, angels paid London an unannounced visit one night? Place des Anges by French company Les Studios de Cirque was the climax of a remarkable day of performances programmed by Crying Out Loud as part of the London 2012 festival, which wittily transformed Piccadilly Circus and the surrounding streets into a real circus.

If you missed it, head to Hull on 2 July when, in Queens Gardens from 9.45pm, a band of glittering winged figures high above the crowd will create a storm of feathers in the sky.

Watch Place des Anges as part of Piccadilly Circus Circus here.
