Russells International Circus returning to Sheringham
08:00 13 March 2014
Arriba arriba - circus stars from Mexico are coming to Sheringham next month.
Russells International Circus, which does not use animals, will be returning to Cookie’s car boot site for the eighth year between Monday April 7 - Monday April 21.
New acts include Chico Rico the clown and rolling globe act Las Chicas Morales, both from Mexico.
The family-friendly circus which includes jugglers, acrobats, trapeze artists and sword balancing acts has just returned from a two-month tour of India’s south coast.
Organisers are looking for a local charity or charities to support during their stay at Sheringham.
Clown Alex Morley, 24, grew up in Watton but joined Russells four years ago.
He said: “People should expect the biggest and best show we have ever done. We have spent the whole winter looking for new artists. People should expect all the thrills and spills from the Big Top.
“The show includes something for all the family and we use music for everybody.”
Russells includes 20 performers, including acrobats from Romania, a gymnast called Miss Sophia from Norwich-based gymnastics school Circus Chermond, Antonia Candela and the pirates, and a human slinky act.
Mr Morley added: “Sheringham is a lovely, friendly place where we get regular visitors. We always look forward to coming back.”
Tickets are now on sale and there will be a 3pm and 6pm show each day, except Bank Holiday Monday when there will be a 2pm show.
Tickets cost from £12-£18 and can be bought by calling the ticketline on 07752 218805.
Tickets for all Wednesday shows cost £5.99 per person.
Russells will be taking the tour to Fakenham, Clipbush Lane, between April 23-27; Taverham Garden Nursery between April 30-May 5.
