The Poole BID team paid a visit to Hollywood Fancy Dress on Friday to get into the spirit of the Circus Spectacle ahead of this weekend’s event.
As a break from their usual work to improve Poole’s Quay and High Street, the team donned some of Hollywood’s best circus costumes for a spot of clowning around.
Taking place on Saturday, September 14, the circus themed event will bring a host of elite circus performers to Poole High Street and Town Quay from 10am until 6.30pm. The line-up of acts includes an award-winning juggler, stupendous stilt walkers and a breathtaking pirate themed acrobatic act, all of whom are recognised globally for their captivating performances.
Organised by Poole BID and Thirty 12 Events, staff have been working around the clock to bring a free day of family fun for everyone to enjoy in Poole.
Ailsa Wilson, BID Manager, said: “We are extremely excited for the Circus Spectacle to roll up this Saturday. The day will be non-stop fun from start to finish and will be a chance to see a range of circus acts, including Jamie Jigsaw, Thomas Trilby, Steve Kaos, as well as many other thrilling performers who are recognised across the world for entertaining crowds with their extraordinary talents.
“Not only is this a day for fun, but it is also a chance for visitors to support their local high street and see what Poole has to offer. This is the first circus-themed event of its kind in the area, so we are looking forward to the day being a great success.”
Poole BID works in partnership with other organisations including the local businesses, BCP Council, Dorset Police and Poole Tourism with the aim of making Poole an attractive place to live, work and visit.
