Circus Mondao entertains crowds in Tottington
A travelling circus featuring performers from around the world is being held in Bury until Sunday.
Circus Mondao has set up base at Walshaw Road in Tottington and among the death-defying stunts on show will be the Wheel of Death, performed by Vitalie Eremia from Moldova and Petrick Alberto from Persia who is making his first trip to the UK.
Other attractions include clowns, hula hooping, a cloud swing, juggling and trampolining.
The circus also features animals including ponies, camels, llamas, reindeer and zebras.
Petra Jackson, circus ringmistress, said in the age of children being tied to computer games and smartphones, it aims to bring the whole family together.
She said: “Circus Mondao is a traditional family circus which believes in giving good quality family entertainment.
“In today’s society so many families do not do things together and we believe our show is suitable for all ages, from two to 92.
“Every year we change our show to give people something new to see.”
The circus was founded by the Timmis family in 2007, and they have travelled the country including a recent month-long stint in Blackpool over the summer.
Gracie Timmis and her sister Carol set up the circus after travelling the world as circus artistes, and after acquiring a menagerie of animals they decided to set up their own travelling circus. Gracie’s two daughters Madalane and Cinzia are also both involved in the circus.
Shows take place at 5pm and 7.30pm today and tomorrow, at 2pm and 5pm on Saturday and at 2pm on Sunday.
Tickets for the side circle cost £14 for adults or £10 for children, the centre circle costs £16 for adults or £12 for children, or £18 for adults or £14 children for ringside tickets.
