Come and join the circus!

PADOS are proud to present Barnum, the story of the life of PT Barnum – the inspiration behind The Greatest Showman.

Barnum loves spectacle and excitement – but will his circus succeed or will there be disaster ahead? Will his wife Charity be able to support and steer his ambitions and will he be loyal to her?

“Come follow the band” and enjoy an evening of tightrope walking, unicycling and aerial thrills, all delivered by the multi award-winning PADOS Theatre Group.

Rescheduled from Wednesday 22 – Saturday 25 April 2020.

Dates & Times


First night £13 / other nights £13 floor level seats, £16 stalls (prices include fees)

Support PADOS to get shows back on their stage

Community theatre group PADOS had a difficult 2020, coping not only with the COVID pandemic but also physical damage to their venue in Prestwich. If you’ve enjoyed the shows they bring to The Met, you may want to donate to help support them in repairing their venue and preparing more great shows for future years.
