The circus is back in town and about to unleash thrills, spills, feats of strength and death-defying antics by acts from around the globe.
Under the watchful eye of ever-present ringmaster Norman Barrett MBE, Zippo’s Circus has a ‘Carnaval’ theme this year, featuring two hours of high energy big top action in the grounds of Falkirk Stadium.
World-renowned Norman, who has been Zippo’s main man in the top hat and red coat for almost 20 years, said: “We have performing horses and horsepower with the four Brazilian motorcyclists zooming around the ‘Globe of Death’. We also have high-flying acrobats from Cuba along with our other well-loved acts.”
Norman will host the event along with his famous performing budgies and hopes families will flock to the tents in their hundreds to take advantage of the entertainment available during the school summer holidays.
Zippo’s Circus will be running shows at the stadium until Sunday.
