Circus Vegas in Wigan

The Circus Vegas Showgirls

Welsh circus fans are in for a treat as the American-themed Circus Vegas rolls up in Wigan, until January 10.

The circus will make a visual splash with its array of American trucks and according to director John Courtney there will be plenty of thrills inside the  red white and blue big top, including the rip roaring motorbikes in a Globe of Death (one of the most dangerous of all circus stunts, as was proven by the headline-making collision at Uncle Sam's Great American Circus in Ipswich on Bank Holiday Mondayand one of the world's fastest jugglers!

According to the company's operations director Matt O'Hanlon"It will be a fun-filled event for the whole family to enjoy and there will be something for all ages.
"It will be a traditional circus with all the glitz and glamour of Las Vegas. It will bring together traditional tricks with death defying performances."
Hope it's not this cold!
