Norwich circus company Lost in Translation will scale new heights this summer as it celebrates its 10th anniversary with an outdoor season.
The internationally-acclaimed company will return for Interlude in the Close, which is running from Wednesday, July 14 until Monday, August 30.
Interlude is a collaboration between Lost in Translation and Norwich Theatre, which runs the Theatre Royal, Playhouse and Stage Two, and it is back at a new location in Norwich Cathedral Close after it launched last summer in Chapelfield Gardens.
The season features some of the biggest names in comedy, alongside family entertainment, powerful spoken word and unmissable circus.
Interlude in the Close will culminate with a week of performances from Lost in Translation, including Circus Lates from August 24 to 30.
These evenings of live entertainment journey through cabaret, burlesque, circus sideshow and contemporary variety, with performers of different art forms and backgrounds.
The final day of the festival will be a circus-based celebration of community and togetherness in the city.
Massimiliano Rossetti, company director and performer, said: "We’re so excited to be coming back to Interlude in the Close as part of our 10th anniversary year.

"Set in the beautiful grounds of Norwich Cathedral, this outdoor season is a wonderful way to re-engage with audiences and support the recovery of cultural activity in Norwich.
“This past year has seen us separated from both our loved ones and what we love doing, so we can’t wait to bring live performances back to our hometown."
Interlude in the Close, which is being held in partnership with Norwich Cathedral and Norwich School, is designed to be not only Covid-safe but also Covid resilient.
All events can be delivered even if stage four of the government’s roadmap is delayed further and social distancing remains.
As part of its 10th anniversary programme, the company will also be embarking on a London tour with shows Above, Cabaret Unlocked and Hotel Paradiso.
The venues include the Underbelly Festival in Cavendish Square, the Rose Theatre in Kingston and Phoenix Art Club.
