The Circus comes to town

Zippo’s Circus is coming to Kirkintilloch, with an all-new show and the promise it will live up to its winning form as “Britain’s Best Circus” – the title it won in both 2013 and 2014.

This year’s show features musical clowns the Rastellis, beautiful horses, and human-pyramid acrobats the Zulu Warriors.

Then there’s hand-balancer Kremena, a gold medal-winning gymnast for her native Bulgaria before turning her talents to the sawdust ring, while daring Salvatore will “make hearts beat faster as he flies high in chains”.

The climax to the show is the motorcycle Globe of Terror, with four bikers racing horizontally inside the tiny space while – “seen here for the first time” – the Globe splits open as they ride.

There are performing budgies too, courtesy of “the world’s greatest ringmaster”, Norman Barrett MBE.

Zippo’s Circus is at Kirkintilloch’s Woodhead Park from Monday August 3 to Wednesday, August, 5.
