Families across south east Northumberland have been wowed by a popular international circus.

The Netherlands National Circus, one of the largest in Europe, made an appearance at Ashington’s JW Rugby Club last week as one of the final stops on their UK tour.

The show, hosted by Yasmine Smart, who is recognised in the world of circus as one of the all-time leading lights, pulled in the crowds for its three day stint in Northumberland, with an impressive show offering a mix of comedy, juggling, illusion, silks, balancing acts and gravity defying flying trapeze.

All the pieces were performed to the accompaniment of the group’s own Netherlands National Circus orchestra.
