Jugglers, stunt horse riders, perky poodles, ponies, camels, tight ropewalkers, trapeze artistes, acrobats, clowns and the Spectacular Globe of Death motorbike rider will be entertaining the crowds in Alberton from Friday, December 18, to January 3, when the Official Brian Boswell’s Circus will be visiting.
This year’s line up includes Miss Tsetseg from Mongolia -contortionist on the aerial hoop – spinning metres above the sawdust while holding on by her teeth; the energetic Jambo brothers – acrobats from Tanzania; and Madmoiselle Zaya from Mongolia – set to astound the crowds as she walks the tight rope on ballet points and later flies through the air on the single trapeze. A firm favourite is Benji the Spanish clown, who gets up to mischief throughout the show; and the Enksaruul Cossack riders, who perform daring feats on horseback. And don’t forget the spectacular Globe of Death motorbike stunt rider. There is also a new addition to the Boswell family – a T-Rex dinosaur.
