AN ELITE street circus that showcases the best of India’s performers from the legendary entertainment communities is coming to Bridport.

Circus Raj will take over Bridport Millennium Green on Wednesday July 27 and promises aerialists, acrobats, musicians, slack-rope walkers, dancers and puppeteers.

The show also features Iran, a gravity defying acrobat and Govinda, the fakir with jaw-dropping skills – both of whom can be seen in Disney’s live-action remake of Dumbo.

Their ‘spectacular’ show toured Europe

The show starts at 7.30pm and tickets cost £16 for an adult, £15 concession and family £35. They are available to buy from Bridport Tourist Information Centre at Bridport Town Hall, 01308 424901 or via www.bridport-arts.com
