ROLL up roll up to see amazing acrobatics performed by Amsterdam clown Pom Pom - as Alexandra Palace goes Dutch for the Easter holidays.
The Netherlands National Circus is rolling into town and will perform at Haringey’s iconic venue from April 14 to 25.
Touring with its own purpose-made Big Top, the circus promises flying acrobats, trapeze artists, thrilling aerialists, and loveable clowns, but no animals are featured in the shows.
A spokesman for the circus, which was founded in 1948, said: “It’s marvellous to be on tour here with such a special show.
“This circus is from Holland, but the idea of circus performance was a British invention, and the circus is close to people’s hearts everywhere.”
