Traditional circus rolls in
Updated 10:16am Monday 9th June 2014 in News
A TRADITIONAL circus with a modern twist will be a fun show for young and old.
Circus Ginnett comes to Walk Mill Farm, Stourport Road, Bromyard, with some of the top artists from around the world from Friday to Sunday, June 13-15.
Presented by ringmaster Laszlo Schlingloff, the show features the elegant and graceful aerial gymnastics of Anka from Holland, the amazing adagio acrobatics of Bulgarian artistes Veselka and Nedyalko, musical Hungarian clown Antonio, Veselka’s fast-whirling hula hoop dancing and Patrick Austin with his clever and loveable dog Vader.
Ginnett will perform at Walk Mill Farm, on the Stourport Rd opposite the football club from Friday 13th to Sunday 15th June.
Circus-owner Patrick Austin is a descendant of Jean-Pierre Ginnett, a captured French cavalryman released from prison after the Battle of Waterloo. He was first noted as presenting four trained canaries to the public at London’s Ludgate Circus, but talent and hard work by an expanding family saw Circus Ginnett become one of the country’s largest circuses between 1890 and 1930, owning theatres across the country as well as touring with top-quality circus shows.
The youngest performer in the show is just 5 years old – audiences are amazed at the skill and panache of tiny Yana as she presents her own hula-hoop routine, a true trouper following a family tradition of circus performance.
The show’s climax features the Easy Riders, a spectacular motorcycle carousel which sees breathtaking aerial work above fire and knife juggling.
Circus Ginnett opens the doors to a place of warmth, passion and real live entertainment. This is only possible through cooperation, boundless confidence and tremendous team spirit. This is perhaps the strength of the circus; by enjoying the performance of skilled artistes you can forget Facebook, Twitter and your daily concerns.
Performances will be held at 6.30pm on Friday, 3pm and 6m on Saturday and Sunday at 2pm.
