Somewhere inside most of us is a childhood memory of candy floss and red noses. Someone need only hum the first few notes of 'the circus theme song' and at once memories of family fun time are launched as you too hum along to the tune you forgot you knew.
Under a canopy of Boswell Wilkie Circus magic waits a funny man on a unicycle with over-sized shoes and unflattering stripey pants gagging to make a come-back into your everyday arena of life. The Boswell Wilkie Big Top Tent stands as a cheery house of fun pitched in red and white stripes on a green lawn. Under billowing carnival flags, tricks and twists come out to play and artistes come out to entertain. Juggling, hoola-hooping, balancing, flying, stretching, trapezing, dancing, drumming and death-defying acrobating keep an audience of children and children-at-heart gasping in awe.
Traditional entertainment is no longer a travelling treat with the Boswell Wilkie Farm having a fixed playground and a permanent residence. Tented home and postal address of ponies, horses, dogs, fuzzy farm animals and talented circus personalities.
Team building, circus school, birthday parties and extravaganza events are hosted for all ages. Wannabe's can do a circus course tumbling in sawdust or learn the craft of circus costume beading at Wannabeads. Café de Cirque keeps clowns, club cyclists and civilians in a happy supply of cappuccinos and cakes. Circus knick-knacks on sale at the craft shop sell mini circus trinkets so that you can take your own circus act on the road should feel the need to get out of town.
