Cir­cus Big Top a Big Hit

Macclesfield Express - - YOUR PICTURES -

HUN­DREDS of chil­dren en­joyed a visit to the Big Top when a spe­cial cir­cus rolled into town.

Cir­cus Starr, a charity which of­fers free tick­ets to dis­ad­van­taged, dis­abled and vul­ner­a­ble chil­dren, brought ac­ro­bats and clowns to South Park ear­lier this month.

Back to back shows en­ter­tained more than 700 chil­dren and their fam­i­lies.

As an ex­tra bonus 21 beats – a choir in­volved by Macclesfield-based Health­care21 Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Ltd – en­ter­tained au­di­ences ar­riv­ing at the show.

Cre­ated and de­vel­oped by Phillip Gandey, this year’s show is full of eastern prom­ise with an line up of in­ter­na­tion­ally ac­claimed cir­cus tal­ent.

The Tang­ier Broth­ers ac­ro­batic troupe wowed crowd’s with a jaw­drop­ping act on the Space Wheel, while Mex­i­can clown Chico Rico ramped up the laugh­ter with his cheeky an­tics. Sis­ter act Las Chi­cas Mo­rales as­ton­ished the au­di­ence with their grace and bal­anc­ing skills on the rolling globes, while the Serik broth­ers de­fied grav­ity on Chi­nese pole and Romy Bauer aka Princess Jas­mine show­cased her aerial hoop act sus­pended high in the roof of the Big Top.

Neville Wil­son, Cir­cus Starr’s direc­tor, said there was a fan­tas­tic re­ac­tion from the Macclesfield au­di­ence, adding: “Chil­dren dancing in the aisles or shout­ing out is all part of the ex­pe­ri­ence. It is im­por­tant car­ers re­lax and en­joy this shared fam­ily time and don’t feel judged.”
