If you don’t like heights, you might want to avoid Cork City for an evening in June.
World famous for his jaw-dropping feats of daredevilry, high wire walker Chris Bullzini is planning on walking across the River Lee on Sunday, June 9th, 2019.
Balancing on a tightrope suspended above the water, Bullzini will use only a balance pole to cross the water from the middle of Clontarf Bridge to City Quarter, Lapps Quay.
Let’s hope it’s not windy.
Most recently, Bullzini wowed a rapt audience will a death-defying tightrope performance entitled ‘The Journey’ – a 755ft tightrope walk, 66ft over Norwich’s historic market – in early May.
The funambulist, whose wife Phoebe is also a tightrope walker (they are parents to a baby girl), is based in the UK but frequently travels abroad in search of new and exciting challenges.
His Cork performance is all part of SeaFest, a huge waterside celebration of Cork’s maritime culture and heritage, which takes place from June 7th – 9th, 2019. Keep an eye on their Facebook page for updates.
