Dutch circus arrives on Wanstead Flats

Aerial daredevils and side splitting clowns have set up camp on Wanstead Flats as a European circus stops by for the London leg of its UK tour.

The Netherlands National Circus pitched their Big Top on Tuesday and will perform acrobatic displays until Bank Holiday Monday at Wanstead Flats, off of Aldersbrook Road, Manor Park.

Crowds will be entertained by the follow up to the 2011 record breaking tour, with performances from Angelo the clown and triple level trapeze artists The Flying Aces.

Trained on Australia’s Gold Coast, the group are the first trapeze artists from down under to ever perform in Europe and display incredible trust as they fly 13 metres through the air to the waiting hands of their fellow aces.

Three generations of unicyclists will also be on display as The Jackson Family showcase their unique homegrown talent.

Tickets can be purchased online at www.netherlandscircus.eu or by calling the box office on 0844 4155 228.
