The Circus is in town! Yes, the world famous Billy Smart’s Circus is touring and will be hitting my neck of the woods, Wolverhampton West Park, next week (Tuesday April 1st to be exact), for a 6 day stay. Now in its 68th year, Billy Smart’s Circus is a name that is synonymous with the circus tradition and offers an exciting, family friendly experience for all to enjoy. This is a circus that celebrates the talents of the human performers – there are no animals on display here.
What you can look forward to is described as a ‘dazzling combination of theatre, music and dance’. An array of internationally renowned artistes deliver exciting performances of traditional circus fare, including acrobatics, comedy, juggling, illusion and aerial feats.
This year’s artistes include:
THE FLYING ACES from Australia – five exciting youngsters on the flying trapeze
The ASADULLIN TROUPE from Russia bring their spectacular Springboard and Russian Bar acts to the UK for the first time
The X-TREME BROTHERS, a trio of handsome and talented acrobats from Romania are sure to be a talking point of the show
Italian clown JONNY BOGINO brings his whimsical comedy style to the UK audiences for the first time
Argentinian bolas drumming from GABRIEL CARMONA and partner liven up the proceedings together with the foot juggling skills of GERMAINE DELBOSQ from France
And if all this wasn’t enough, the bar is raised even higher with the addition of a LIVE BAND, the only one in a British touring Circus, to complement the energy and action.
Following on from the Wolverhampton Shows, the Billy Smart’s Circus will be moving onto Merseyside with shows at Haydock Park Racecourse. You can find all ticket information, dates, times and availability by visiting the Circus website here.
I will be taking Joe to experience his very first circus next week – be sure to pop back to Fashion-Mommy to read my review.
