Circus Big Top a Big Hit
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.”
