"WE are so pleased to be making
our very 1st visit to the area, You may of seen plenty of other circuses, but
you have not seen anything like Circus Mondao. Its spectacular... Well what a
year we have had so far, 2020 a year no 1 will forget. We started our season mid
February and done about 3 venues before lockdown happened and we all returned to
our farm. We thought it would be a few weeks! Never believing it would be near 5
months before we can start performing again, Well I can tell you we received no
help from the Government, yes we are a registered business, but we do not have a
business premises due to the nature of our business, so we was not eligible for
any of the Government Grants. Our performers are all international performers
who come here to work on VISAs, these cost around £1000 per person with all the
health checks and health charges flights ect. part of their VISA Regulations
is:- 'No Access To Public Funds,' also they 'Can Not Take A Job Outside Of The
Entertainment Sector.' so as you can imagine this has put all these circus
artiste in a very sticky situation, especially with bounders closed, so they
can't return home, to their own country, plus on money to pay for flights, no
income, not being allowed to earn an income and no help from the UK Government.
So how have we survived these last 5 months!!!! Well we have lived off food bank
donations for all that time... YES REALLY! From the kindness of local food banks
that's kept everyone feed for the last 5 months we are forever grateful , It is
not until you have to ask for this help that you realise how amazing these
people are who organise food banks and those who donate to them. To say thank
you to the food banks we want to give back, so we are setting up a 'Food Bank
Collection Point' at the Circus, we are asking every customer to bring along a
non perishable items of food like:- pasta, rice, tinned items, UHT milk, cereal,
crisps, biscuits, toiletries, toilet rolls, etc etc. we are working with local
food bank charities who will be collecting the items from us to redistribute to
families in need. We would love for you to help us publicise this so everybody
knows what we are doing and hopefully will donate some items. we are a
traditional family circus with a host of high flying acrobats, amazing artiste,
crazy clown Ruanito, has come all the way from brazil, beautiful showgirls,
aerial artistry, jugglers, a Wheel Of Death, Moroccan Tumblers, chair balancing,
motor bike carousel, dressage horses... There is just to much to mention. We
have a great traditional circus for all the family to enjoy, our show is
suitable from babies to grannies and its a show not to be missed. We have lots
of new Covid procedures in place to safe guard our staff , artiste and
customers. all our staff and artiste have been living together since lockdown
began, so they are very safe to mix and work with each other. all our staff will
wear PPE while dealing with the public, facemasks or visors and gloves. At the
time of booking tickets we ask those attending to do 'Track and trace,' we have
sanitiser stations around the circus, we are temperature testing on the way into
big top. We have a 1 way system in place and reduced capacity in the big top,
people from family pods can sit together. We ask all attending to keep your
distance from other families, as we want you to enjoy the show, but we want
everyone to be safe as well. Our show is also fully licensed and regulated by
DEFRA. Please go onto our website:-
CircusMondao.Co.UK and our Facebook Page Circus
Mondao to read what others think of our great show." said Petra Jackson.
Petra told us that the Circus will be at the Circus Field, Orrell Hill Lane,
Ince Bludell, (LS85DA) over 9 September to 13 September 2020.
