On Sunday 17th July, Foursight Productions put on a wonderful Big Top spectacle event in celebration of Eid al-Fitr. Having built up the hype slowly over a month, everyone was really excited to see what Happy’s circus would enthrall us with.
An event of this kind had not been undertaken by the Bohra community before, so it was lovely to see children with their families from local schools attend as well as something new for the families within the community.
There were additional funfair type stalls selling different types of food and products, from the delicious African BBQ to Fish & Chips and balloon modelling to massages. The atmosphere encompassed the ethos the Bohra community has of encouraging businesses to be part and parcel of the whole celebratory feel.
The Big Top show itself was spectacular with aerial ballet, dangerous balancing acts as well as the customary clowns leaving the children doubled up in laughter. The beautiful sunshine of the day added to the happiness of having been to see a Happy’s Circus show.
All in all the adults and children left enthralled by the event and in anticipation of next year’s with a sparkle in their eyes.
