Blackpool Tower invited Clowns and jugglers to join Mookie and Mr Boo in an attempt on a world record. The response from the north west’s circus schools was very poor apart from Blackpool Circus school who provided the bulk of the participants. On a very windy day Clowns and jugglers were filmed by Granada reports and North West today on Friday the 14th June. Local school children joined in to make it a memorable occasion. It was marred by one of the “Clowns” stating on interview that the only clown for him was Charlie Chaplin, he never heard of the other Charlie, Charlie Cairoli !
