Then on Tuesday, August 28, there will be a Community Circus Skills Workshop taking place in the Lido Park from 11am to 3pm. Youngsters will be able to try their hand at feather balancing, low stilts and plate spinning to fun bikes, juggling and low tightrope.

Special guest, the Great Raymondo, will also be showcasing his skills in a magic show.

Cllr Emma Stokes, Portfolio Holder for Environment and Street Scene at Wychavon District Council, said: “We have a full programme of fun-filled activities for children and families to take advantage of over the summer holidays.

“Sometimes it can be tricky to come up with new ideas to keep children entertained but these circus workshops and the puppet shows are a perfect way to make sure they are having fun and learning something new at the same time.”
