A stellar line-up of top circus acts from around the world has been unveiled and will be appearing at the end of Clacton Pier over the Whitsun holiday.

The fun gets under way on Saturday May 25 and will continue until Sunday June 2 with two daily shows.

The ever-popular Clown Phillipo will be returning to head the talented cast with a whole new array of mischief throughout the performance.

He will be getting the audience involved in his act and is looking forward to coming back to the town for the nine days.

Clown Phillipo will be backed up by Miss Caroline on the swinging trapeze as well as her exciting hula hoop routine.

Miss Xsenia from Russia will be performing on the low wire and the fast action continues with Africa United with their hoop diving, limbo and acrobatics from this four strong male team. The line-up is completed by Miss Evangeline on the aerial chains.

Clacton Pier Circus is being presented by Fantasia in the Jolly Roger Arena with shows costing £7 at 2.15pm and 4pm every day.

Pier Communications Manager Nigel Brown said it will be the third season that this family entertainment has been brought back.

“It’s the perfect live show for the end of the Pier which will appeal to all ages and the circus will not involve any animals,” he added.

“The kids will love it - and grandparents won’t be disappointed with this traditional circus.”

The Jolly Roger Arena is converted into an intimate circus arena seating around 300 people and tickets can be booked online at or bought on the day.

The show lasts for one hour, twenty minutes with a ten minute interval.
