A traditional circus with a host of international stars is heading to Higham Ferrers next week.

Circus Ginnett is bringing its new show to the town and will be setting up the big top in Castle Fields just off Kimbolton Road from May 17 to May 21.



The show includes artists from Hungary, Russia, Cuba, Mexico and the UK.

A spokesman for the show said: “Mexican clown Gerry has smuggled all his craziness into the UK.

“Lisandra from Cuba will make her entrance on an amazing quadrant - sparkling on the stage of the big top, she will amaze you with elegance and grace.

“Lui will amaze you with his comedy acts, making you laugh until tears.

“Vitzo from Hungary with her glass balance skills will mesmerise old ones and young.

“And Vader the wonder dog will be causing trouble all around.”

The spokesman said anyone quoting the Northamptonshire Telegraph newspaper will get their tickets for £5, and added: “The mix of sizzling excitement, perfectionism and up-tempo humour awaits you in the latest production of Circus Ginnett.

“The result is a smooth running fun-filled performance that captivates the audience from the beginning to the end.

“A show that once again proves that circus art is valued entertainment for all ages.

“The long family history and the friendly image makes Circus Ginnett a truly unique entertainment.

“As soon as you step into our big top, you will feel the magic called circus.”
