Have to say circuses kinda freak me out. I feel enclosed and claustrophobic in the tent and clowns, well, they just make me feel damned uncomfortable. Don't know what it is, but they do. Think Anais feels the same as there was no allocated seating, you go in the tent and pick your own seat, Anais asked to sit at the back so she wouldn't be accosted by any clown.
Circus was fantastic though, first of all a young girl hula hooping, then hoola hooping with 24 rings! Anais and Roman sat open mouthed! Secondly a lady doing a balancing act whilst climbing a ladder, again my kids sat there open mouthed! Fantastic trampoline artists, acrobats, jugglers and all round old fashioned family entertainment.
The clown had them in hysterics, the ring master had them laughing in their seats and the acts were fantastic. Skilled people doing dangerous stunts such as throwing flaming knives *don't try this at home kids!*
EDIT - no longer watching War Horse as Mark seen The Adjustment Bureau is on Lovefilm so watching that instead!
