A POPULAR circus is returning to Somerset this year in time for Christmas.

Circus Funtasia, who perform regularly in the county, is returning from December 10.

The theatrical show, which features spinning fairies, Argentinian nutcrackers and festive comedy, will be at Sanders Garden Centre in Brent Knoll until January 2.

Circus Funtasia still managed a successful tour of the UK, despite the difficulties of the past year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

"After our tour, we have managed to get back to Sanders Garden Centre for the Christmas period," said a spokesperson for Circus Funtasia.

"We have kept all the international casts from Cuba, Bulgaria, Spain and Argentina to perform the biggest Christmas show Somerset has ever seen.

"We are all in desperate need for entertainment with a shocking Christmas last year, and so its time for the biggest show to hit Somerset.

"As a special thank you we are offering all blue light card holders a chance to see the show free of charge. Without them this would not have been possible."

Alongside the festive fun, there will be fire breathers, aerialists and the wheel of death.
