WORLD CIRCUS DAY
The seventh World Circus Day took place on the 15th April 2017. This special day is a worldwide celebration of the unique culture of circus and the ever evolving nature of circus art. Gandey is a name that has firmly cemented itself in the heart of circus culture throughout the past 100 years, and to celebrate World Circus Day we would like to share some of our audiences favourite circus memories from our Spring tour.

Another picture memory from Carolyn Hasler of your ringmaster from the Spring Tour - Binky Beaumont.
"Amazing show! I would completely recommend to anyone considering going to see it, DONT HESITATE! Worth every penny, and it's not often you can say that these days! My 5 year old and his best friend loved it, not nearly as much as us adults though. Can't wait to see you back soon Gandeys!"

We went to the Newcastle under Lyme show and what a fantastic choice it was! The performers were fantastic, the stunts were executed perfectly…..This is not a budget, cheesy cop out. This is a professional show!
