Great Yarmouth Hippodrome Circus - Christmas Spectacular.
On 11th January 2015 the East Coast Truckers took a party of 265 adults and
children to the Great Yarmouth Hippodrome Circus. They joined the other
spectators and were entertained by a fast moving dynamic show with over 50
performers in the unique 111 year old atmosphere of the legendary Hippodrome.
The show lived up to expectation with the amazing Globe Bikers, flying acrobatics
and swimmers, dancers from Dance Estelle and students from the Chermond
Gymnastics School in Norwich.
There were moments of hilarious comedy from Jack Jay and Pip Randall. At one
stage our vice chairman Nigel Folkard made an unexpected appearance and joined
in a comic routine followed by cheers from the audience.
New members Yvette & Stu Witham summed up their day by saying:
ĎAs members Stu and I helped out the day of the circus, where we meet lovely
children who enjoyed the event and gave us such pleasure seeing them with smiles
on their faces.
One young child sitting nearby laughed all the way through with delight. This to us
is what the charity means to usí
Sharon Thorndyke - Child Liaison Officer added:
A big thank you to all the members who turned up and helped to make the circus
trip a success today I think the kids faces said it all! Another brilliant show at the
Hippodrome Circus, Great Yarmouth.
