The circus is rolling into town

TOM Duffy's Circus is coming back to Lisburn from Wednesday April 21 until Sunday April 25 and the big top will be located at the usual site at Lagan Valley Leisureplex.

This years spectacular performance takes on a movie theme, in the opening production Robin Hood, Friar Tuck, Maid Marian and the Sheriff of Nottingham show their skills at bareback Horseriding, Ariel Silks and amazing acrobatics in a polished Robin Hood adventure.

Adult members of the audience will never be safe as clown Davide is on the prowl looking for passengers for his imaginary car.

Cruellas performing dogs are cute, enthusiastic and very talented and lead to the big cage going up in the ring.

When Sharka the African Lion and the Bengal Tigers enter the cage the audience gasp at these beautiful and talented animals, as they climb, jump and roll over, loving the encouragement they get from the audience.

Following the much needed interval the second half of the show opens with Tom Duffy's Liberty Stallions, six young energetic stallions and the cutest little Shetland ponies perform to beautiful music played by Tom Duffy's Circus band.

As the lights go down a solitary figure dressed in black and carrying a walking stick enters the ring, then proceeds to trip over - it could only be Charlie Chaplin.

The audience can hardly contain their excitement as the entire company perform a tribute to the Lion King featuring cloudswing trapeze and the Russian bar acrobats to ignite all your senses.

Tom Duffy's Circus 2010 really is a show not to be missed.

The big top will be at Lagan Valley Leisureplex from Wednesday April 21 until Sunday April 25.
