Half Term Circus Fun

Half term circus fun with PeteZa and Lucas Jet at Dingles!

The February school’s half term saw the Dingles Heritage Fairground experimenting with opening at this time of year for the first time.   Roaring success!

Dingles is an indoor attraction in Devon, managed by the Fairground Heritage Trust.   It is a collection of national importance restoring, maintaining and presenting fairground memoirs and we are lucky enough to have it right on our doorstep.  If in the area it really is worth a visit.

The attraction has lots of museum type exhibits dedicated to fairground history, circus and steam, living vehicles, transport,  rides, stalls, artworks, amusement machines, and a huge indoor fairground with beautiful rides and stalls you can go on.   Yes it’s a trip down memory lane but also has lots of appeal to youngsters.   Prepare to ride!

During this half term week we were asked to provide extra circus skills and entertainment.

For the Valentine’s weekend, PeteZa came in all fired up to celebrate the occasion… Hence the dress style!  Mr Lover Lover!

As well as some circus skills to have a go with, random mini-shows and pop-up entertainments, he  provided a huge range of crazy balloon sculptures obviously with an excess of heart shapes and pink balloons for valentines.

Once the weekend valentines theme was out-of-the-way, the fun continued every day with more balloon twisting, (kiddie life-size alien puppets being very popular) and entertainment.
