A fun-packed circus is coming to Ipswich for half term - in a brand new, heated big top.
Circus Fantasia will return to Trinity Park in Felixstowe Road, Ipswich, from Saturday, February 15 to Sunday, February 23.
The circus has come up with a completely new show for 2020, which includes the award-winning Rastelli musical clowns from Italy, a motorbike on the high wire, aerial silks, and magic and illusion from the Duo Lumei from Spain.
Other acts include the Easy Riders motorbike carousel. Alex the Fireman, who will cause mischief and mayhem, together with new fun character Mr N, and cowboys with whip cracking, knife throwing, lassos, and axe throwing.
There will also be a chance to see Miss Reka on the giant aerial umbrella, Miss Anya and her hula hoop sensation and much more, with music from a live circus orchestra.
One of the most unusual attractions is the only set of travelling musical dancing water fountains. The show does not include any animals.
The circus has a new Italian-made circus big top, which it says is state-of-the-art, and super-heated even in cold weather.
