If you're lost for things to do with the kids on the school holidays, why not take them to a special treat, the perennial family favourite of a live circus show?

Following last year's successful summer show, Silvers Circus is back with the highlight Phoenix Riders in the Globe of Death. This year, for the first time, the circus will also feature The Amazing Football Playing Boxer Dogs. As well as that, there are over 15 international acts that perform live on stage every day, in the matinees and evening 2 hour performances.

Silvers Circus was established in 1976, and prides itself on providing a magic and acrobatics-based take on classic circus entertainment as it travels around Australia.

After my daughter went to her first Circus show as a toddler she's been begging me to go back, she just didn't understand the big top wasn't a permanent fixture. She'll be very excited to go now the circus is in town again.
