Juggling, hula-hooping and rope walking will be the order of the day when the circus rolls back into Ipswich as part of colourful a tour of Suffolk and Essex.

Circus Petite will tour the area in the spring with what organisers at Ipswich-based Mr Bean Entertainments describe as "wholesome family fun".

The spectacular display kicks off with a show at Bury St Edmunds' Nowton Park between Thursday, March 26 and Sunday, March 29 before moving onto The Recreation Ground, in Stowmarket, from Thursday, April 2 to Sunday, April 5.

The entertainers' 200-seat circus tent then moves to Bath House Meadow, Walton-on-the-Naze, between Wednesday, April 8 and Monday, April 13, before heading to The Delphi Centre Sports Field in Sudbury from Wednesday, April 15 to Sunday, April 19.
