ACROBATS and aerialists are set to perform in Beith next month as a modern circus visits the town as part of its Scottish tour.

Circus Montini will hold shows in its state-of-the-art Big Top at Orr's Trust public park from July 25-27.

The event aims to follow in the footsteps of the great circuses of the past in bringing the show to people’s doorsteps, rather than performing in bigger towns and cities.

As part of the tour, the performers will also visit Dornoch, Pitlochry, Crieff, Stenhousemuir, Cardross and Girvan.

Two shows, at 2.30pm and 7pm, will be held on Tuesday (July 26), with a single show at 7pm on Monday (July 25) and at 2.30pm on Wednesday (July 27) on the Beith run.

A spokesperson for the circus said: “You will also see the incredible athleticism of acrobats and aerialists who not only amaze with their skills but risk their lives daily. 

“You will see production and choreography that would grace any major theatre stage in London's West End. In short – you will see Circus Montini.”

Seating is limited, therefore booking in advance is advised. Tickets are available here.
