The Netherlands National Circus is set to wow in Peterlee with its new show - and you could be there for free.
To mark the 250th birthday of the circus, we have 15 family tickets to give away for the show, which will be pitching up at Eden Lane Park in Peterlee from Thursday, May 10 to Sunday, May 13.
The two-hour family show features an international cast of more than 30 performers.
Highlights include the Duo Extreme who can be seen flying though the air inside the Big Top as they showcase their skills as aerial performers. In this unique act another dimension is added as they perform suspended over a tank filled with water. At times they will be lowered or even dropped into the water and can be seen dancing under water in a fashion similar to synchronised swimming before being elevated once again up in the air.
