GERRY Cottle returns to Paignton with his Wow Circus — described as a high-energy family show featuring a new generation of young performers against a non-stop rock and pop soundtrack.
Driven by the most popular music from the last 60 years, accompanying an inspiring line-up of circus acts, comedy and magic for live entertainment that promises to thrill and astonish all ages.
From Romania, there will be the hand-balancing and trapeze skills of Mikal Ionescu who recently starred on Britain's Got Talent.
From America and Holland, the comedy illusions of Scott and Mureil, Gold Clown Award winners from the Monte Carlo Circus Festival.
While from Africa, there is the whirlwind acrobatics of the Tanzanian Tornadoes, and from France, the comedy talents of Coreo Hazzard, who juggles ping pong balls with his mouth and ends up inside a giant balloon.
Home-grown UK talent includes The Wowsters, a troupe of 10 talented young performers led by Mike Comber and Ellen Ramsay.
A circus spokesman said: “They will astound with their unbelievable daredevil acts high in the roof of the big top, on unicycles, roller skates and juggling on the back of quad bikes.
“The performers will roar around the stage and on a motorbike on the high-wire.
“In another UK first, Gerry Cottle presents Magique with the Queens of Magic — girls with attitude showcasing their larger-than-life Las Vegas style illusions. You won't believe your eyes."
Circus master, Gerry Cottle, said: “It's got my name on it and I promise you a great show like no other.
“A whole world of live entertainment for all the family — we think you'll have the time of your life."
The show will be performing on Paignton Green from Thursday, August 4, to Tuesday, August 30. Performances start at 3pm and 7.30pm on weekdays and at 2pm on 5pm on weekends.
