Leaping into the festive season, Cirque Alfonse returns after wowing audiences around the world.

The family of lumberjack performers from Quebec bring back their smash-hit, log-balancing, wood-chucking, axe-juggling spectacular for 2014.

A show for all the family, Timber! brings together circus, theatre, dance, live traditional music and the folklore of Quebec. It's a wild ride of gravity-defying acrobatics and thrilling tricks with metal saws, axes and logs from the Alfonse's family farm.

Featuring phenomenal feats of agility and strength, Timber! stars the whole family from 66-year-old grandad Alain to three-year-old grandson Arthur.

Cirque Alfonse was founded in 2005 and the family has worked with some of the world's most renowned circuses including Cirque du Soleil, Cirkus Cirkor and Les 7 Doigts de la Main.

Don't miss this joyous family show that critics raved about and audiences took to their hearts.
