Going to the circus is a roughly annual treat for us and one that H always enjoys. Last year we went to Gandey’s Circus when they came to Merry Hill, and this year they invited us back to see their new show. Gandey’s Circus is performing every day this half term if you want to pop over to see the show. It’s an all human, thrill show, so no animals involved.
H was thrilled to see the Wheel of Death again as he enjoyed that so much last time and it is pretty spectacular. There were loads of fabulous acrobats and some clown fun. I liked that there was a bit of a Halloween twist on things with acrobatic skeletons and the like. For Frozen fans, there is a sequence performed to ‘Let it Go’ with acrobats in costume.
The finale for the show is a globe where up to 3 motorcyclists drive round inside. It’s spectacular, but a bit noisy and there are some fumes if you are very close up. My favourites though were split between the spectacular hula hoop show of Emi Velokova and the friendly clown fun of Chico Rico. No scary clowns in this production.
