GANDEY’S CIRCUS COMES TO SALFORD WITH SPECTACULAR THRILLS
 

Star date: 7th April 2017

21ST CENTURY CIRCUS ARRIVES IN BUILE HILL PARK

Gandey's Circus has arrived in Buile Hill Park, with afternoon and evening shows until 17th April. Under the centrally heated big top is an incredible array of, what ringmaster Binky Beaumont describes as, "high octane fuelled tricks" by artistes from all over the world.

With state-of-the-art lighting, sound and choreography, Binky says this circus has moved into the 21st Century with a production "that gets kids to put their iphones down and keeps them entertained for two hours". There's a rocket, aerial acrobatics and modern day clowning, with not a scary face or animal in sight. It looks set to be a stunning show.

In Buile Hill Park, the big top has arrived, as Gandey's rolls up with a show that ringmaster Binky Beaumont says is taking circus to new heights.

"We've brought traditional circus way up into the 21st Century" he explains "The lighting equipment for this show is the biggest touring in any British circus, we have sound and lighting technicians permanently with us designing, creating and using the latest technology to give the whole atmosphere...

"It's a theatrical production" he adds "It's produced and directed by choreographers, not just a show put together with individual acts; it's a complete two hour performance."

Unlike the circus that visited Salford last summer, Gandey's has no animals and describes itself as an 'All Human Spectacular'. Neither does it have those scary faced clowns...

"It's not the usual clowns, it's a very modern take on it" Binky insists "There's a lot of comedy but also a lot of production numbers and exciting high octane-fuelled tricks that people won't often see, including a revolving space wheel, a rocket that shoots around the roof of the big top and some surprises."

Gandey's is part of the huge company that also tours the Chinese State Circus, Cirque Surreal and The Lady Boys of Bangkok amongst others. They've been going for almost one hundred years, over five generations and certainly know the business backwards...

"But Gandy's is what we like to do, it's great, it's the fun thing" says Binky, who will be ringmaster for some of the Salford shows and is well aware of what current day audiences demand...

"We've got to create a production that gets kids to put their iphones down for a minute; that gets kids to interact and see a live performance, so we put everything together and keep them entertained for two hours" he says "They're used to CGI, big blockbuster films and all that stuff, so we've got to do something special..."

Gandey's Circus is certainly promising 'something special', having arrived in Salford for the first time, pushing the boundaries of traditional circus for a new ethical, switched on generation...
