Roll up! The circus is in town to turn frowns upside down

Have your say

CIRCUS performers from Holland will be in Leeds next month as part of a 50-venue tour of the UK.

The Netherlands National Circus, one of the largest circuses in the world, will set up its Luxury Theatre Big Top at Woodhouse Moor in March.

There will be performances from acrobats, jugglers, aerial stunt experts, illusionists and flying trapeze artists.

Audiences will also be treated to musical performances from the circus’ own live orchestra during the two-hour show.

Netherlands National Circus will perform at the site on Woodhouse Lane from Sunday, March 1, to Thursday, March 11.

A circus spokesman said: “It’s marvellous to be on tour here with such a special show.”

The shows include circus acts from across the world.

From Australia there are the Flying Aces and springboard acrobats the Cretzu Troupe are from Romania.

The clown Angelo hails from Portugal and unicyclists The Jackson Family are from Spain.

Previous shows put on by the award-winning circus have been well received by critics.

One reviewer wrote: “The best critics are children and mine loved it, I know yours will too.”
