CIRCUS Joseph Ashton is rolling out the entertainment in High Wycombe these school holidays with a special celebration to mark World Circus Day.

World Circus Day will be celebrated on Saturday, April 15 at noon under the big top with a host of family entertainment and prizes up for grabs.

During the celebrations there will be a panel interview with the Ashton family performers, a dog training demonstration with Dante Ashton and a dance troupe performance. The regular show will start after the celebrations and three lucky families in the audience will win an all access backstage tour after the show.

World Circus Day is held on the third Saturday of April every year and celebrates circus arts and culture. This year marks the 8th anniversary.
