THE CIRCUS has arrived and trapeze artists, clowns and cartoon animals are set to entertain crowds over the next five days.

The first performance of Mr Fips’ Wonder Circus starts at 7.30pm tonight (Wednesday) at the site on the A606 between Stamford and Empingham.

Jugglers, magicians and spider man will also be a part of show which runs until Sunday.

The circus has been organised by Jan Erik Brenner, aka Mr Fips, who has been a clown for the past 35 years.

Jan, who will also be performing, said: “There will be fun and comedy for the whole family.

“There will be traditional things like custard in the face and buckets of water, as well as cartoon animals and magicians.

“I like to encourage audience participation and would call the show more of a circus pantomime. It will be great fun for everyone.”

Performances will take place on Thursday and Friday at 5pm and 7.30pm, on Saturday at 2pm and 5pm, and on Sunday at 3pm.

Tickets for the event range from £7 to £9, and are available from the on site box office or by calling 07719 877422.
