ROLL up, roll up!

The circus has arrived in the Doncaster village of Moorends, with Circus of the Orient making its first ever visit to the venue.

The big top will be at Moorends Recreation Ground both today and tomorrow.

Acts from China, Mongolia, Kyrgyzstan, Bulgaria, Romania and France are included in the line up.

Phillip Gandey, artistic director, said: “This production is a brilliant mix of oriental and western elements to create a thrilling, entertaining and laughter-packed show which will appeal to all the family.

“The deliberate mixture of cultures is due to oriental humour not being easily appreciated by western audiences, so our clowning duo from Romania and France bring a modern twist to guarantee laughter.”

Other acts include springboard acrobatics from the amazing Julio Troupe combined with supreme aerialists, Trio Serik, who will be on hanging straps high in the roof of the Big Top.
