The Greatest Showman – Film Showing with Bristol Film Festival

Bristol Film Festival bring the musical film sensation back to the big screen this November for their first event with Circomedia. Taking place in Circomedia’s main base, the beautiful St Paul’s Church on Portland Square, guests will enjoy a taste of live circus performance before the film itself. It will be a spectacular evening’s entertainment that will guarantee you leave humming the hit songs!

Inspired by the life of P.T. Barnum, this feel-good musical tells the story of the charismatic showman’s meteoric rise to fame and fortune in his pursuit of bringing entertainment to the masses. As he overcomes trials, tribulations and judgemental peers, Barnum assembles a troupe worthy of international acclaim – but will his ambitions lead him to risk losing everything that he truly holds dear?
