Your chance to join the circus

Friday 4th April 2014

The circus is coming to town this Easter - and local circus skills enthusiasts have the chance to join in!

Santus Circus  opens at Newnham Court Shopping Village in Bearsted Road from Wednesday, April 9, to Monday, April 21, and they are inviting amateur jugglers, unicyclists and aerialists to come along to a free circus 'masterclass' and skills workshop on opening day.

Ringmaster Ernest Santus (pictured) said: “My family have been circus owners and performers for six generations.  We believe audiences appreciate our performance better if they have a good understanding of what we do, and understanding comes with trying for yourself!"

The workshop and masterclass take place under the Big Top at Notcutts Garden Centre from 11am to 1pm on Wednesday, April 9. The full troupe of professional artistes will be on hand to teach and guide their visitors.
