THE eighth generation of a family circus is flying into Clacton with an all new show.

Santus Circus - run by brothers Ernest and Roger - features everything from hand-balancing and trapeze to unicycling, juggling and acrobatics.

The circus boasts acts from Mongolia to Colombia and is promising an incredible performance.

The big top is in town on West Road beside the airfield until bank holiday Monday with tickets from £9.
