Clowns, aerial acts and more as the Circus Mondeo arrives
Roll up, roll up, as the Circus Mondao arrives on Friday (February 15) to entertain audiences of all ages.
The traditional family circus will be at Swineshead, off the Bicker Bar roundabout on the A17/A52, until Sunday, February 24.
As always, it includes talented performers, animal shows and, of course, a clown.
Clown Ruanito from Brazil will be spreading smiles all round, with spectacular acts by aerial artists, jugglers and trapeze artists.
Plus, expect wire walking, pole acrobatics, ‘tumblers’ and more.
While the show also includes performing animals, organisers explain that they put the care of their animal stars at the utmost, with the circus fully licensed and regulated by DEFRA (the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs).
They are aware that there has been some negative publicity regarding animals in circuses and people can visit their website to read more about how the animals are cared for.
Performances are on Friday at 5pm and 7.30pm, Saturday, February 16, at 2pm and 5pm; Sunday 17, at 2pm; no performances Monday 18 or Tuesday 19; then Wednesday 20, at 5pm and 7.30pm; Thursday 21, at 5pm and 7.30pm; Friday 22, at 5pm and 7.30pm; Saturday 23 at 2pm and 5pm and Sunday, 24 at 2pm.
