The hard-working team behind a brand new circus arrive in Hemel Hempstead on Wednesday all set to cram nine shows into a five day stay on Box Moor.

Circus Fantasia hit the road for the first time this year, and the small company includes artists from all over the world.

They promise aerial artistry, juggling, stunning acrobatics and award-winning comedy – and as the nights draw in, the heated big top will also be a welcome attraction.

Spokesman Olympia Rosesaid: “Our aim is to bring good old-fashioned, top-quality, affordable entertainment to the public, catering for all ages and cultures.

“With artists from all over the globe, this new circus for 2013 is the circus you have always dreamed of.”

There’s one show planned for Wednesday evening, two performances on Thursday and Friday and three on Saturday, then the team wind down on Sunday with just one show before they hit the road again. Tickets are £12 plus booking fee, find out more at www.ticketline.co.uk.
