Kentish Express Ashford & District - What's On - - DAYS OUT -

There’s a spec­tac­u­lar cir­cus fly­ing through the air from this week for two cel­e­bra­tions - Christ­mas and 250 years of cir­cus.

The Big Top Christ­mas Cir­cus Spec­tac­u­lar opens at Groom­bridge Place near Tun­bridge Wells on Thurs­day, De­cem­ber 20, when per­form­ers from Happy Cir­cus will be bring­ing their time­less magic four times a day. Pip Ran­delle will un­wrap a mix of in­ter­na­tional artists, per­form­ing thrilling acts in­ter­spersed with Christ­mas fun, from ae­rial acts and ac­ro­batic feats. 2018 marks 250 years of modern cir­cus - Philip Ast­ley cre­ated the first in 1768 in Lon­don.

Shows will be held be­tween Thurs­day, De­cem­ber 20 and Sun­day, De­cem­ber 23 and again from Thurs­day, De­cem­ber 27 and Sun­day, De­cem­ber 30 at 11.30am, 1pm, 3pm and 4.30pm.

En­try to the big top cir­cus shows are free with ad­mis­sion to Groom­bridge Place. While at the site pop in to the Groom­bridge Café for re­fresh­ments, and let the kids let off steam with Cru­soe’s World and the Gi­ant Tree Swings in the En­chanted For­est. En­try to the cir­cus only costs £5.95 for chil­dren, £9.95 for adults and £25 for a fam­ily of four (2+2). Fa­ther Christ­mas is also in his grotto be­tween Thurs­day, De­cem­ber 20 and Sun­day, De­cem­ber 23. For de­tails visit
