James – Tightrope Walker | UK


James has been a circus performer for 17 years. He trained as an actor at Manchester University and specialised in circus and physical theatre. He performs all over the world with up to 150 shows a year.

He is an accomplished juggler and one of the UK’s few professional tight and slackrope walkers. His wire-walks have included Liverpool’s Albert Docks, Halifax’s Piece Hall and a 50 foot wide pancake (as it was cooking) for Record Breakers. Other TV credits have included World in Action, Granada Reports and this year teaching tightrope walking to both Ant & Dec (Ant & Dec’s Big Night Out) and Jon Tickle (Brainiac).

James has his own free-standing rigs (both tight and slack) and for longer or higher walks contacts with specialist rigging companies.
