FOR one day only Rhyl will be given a circus-themed makeover.

There will be plate spinning, a stilt-walking circus ringmaster, Punch and Judy shows and a drumming band during Circus Saturday on July 13. This will run between 11am and 4pm.

Cllr Ellie Chard, Rhyl Mayor, said: "The town council already supports the larger events such as the air show and the soul music festival which attract visitors from far and wide.

"We want people to be able to have a go at activities themselves which is why we have a giant game of Kerplunk and circus skills workshops. It’s all designed to bring a little fun to the town and make people smile."

There will also be crazy mirrors, a magician, balloon modelling, hoola hooping, and face painting as well as a giant parrot puppet and caricaturist.
