Great Yarmouth Out There Festival expecting 50,000 spectators
One of the biggest circus festivals in Europe is taking place on the streets of a seaside resort this weekend.
The event in Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, coincides with the 250th anniversary of the first circus.
The Out There Festival and its cast of 100 performers from across the world is expected to attract more than 50,000 spectators.
Entry is free and organisers estimate the event could be worth £1m to the local economy.
The festival, now in its 11th year, promises to bring colour, music, balancing skills, noise and humour to the streets, parks and open areas.
Performers will be very close to the audiences on the resort's street, quayside and selected venues.
