Circus students make a big impression at the Pleasure Beach talent contests

Three of our Circus students took part in a series of Talent contests at the Pleasure beach Globe and Horeshoe bar. All three made the finals for under 16 and over 16s. For the under 16s Thomas Senior took second place with his ball bouncing routine and Danial Tate-Pots was joint 4thwith his Poi routine. A very creditable effort considering the standard of Singers that came 1st 3rd and joint 4th. There was only one place in the over 16s final and James Wade’s juggling act did not win but he impressed with his skills and unusual style of performance. All three can be seen in the following youtube videos and also live at the North Pier, Blackpool on the 24th October in “All hands on deck” a Charity show produced by Tony Jo the ex Grumbleweed and manager of Joe Longthorne.
