PUNCH and Judy will be pleasing the crowds with their antics at Tudor Grange Park this coming Saturday, September 4 when they are guests of honour at the Solihull Lions Carnival – if you’re there early you might even see them three times during the afternoon.
With an official opening by the Mayor of Solihull Councillor Ken Meeson, the event, organised by Solihull Lions, seeks to promote the public image of the Lions who aim to raise lots and lots of money to support local charities and needy causes.
Promised is non-stop, thrill-a-minute entertainment with Dangerous Steve and his Fire and Chainsaw juggling as well as riding a Giant Unicycle, with Ladder Balancing thrown in plus Blindfold Motorcycle riding in a dynamic act full of stunts.
All with plenty of audience participation, knockabout comedy, crazy balancing and a fire-juggling finale.
Also at the Carnival will be Van Buren who is bringing his magical illusion and variety show with a mix of the visually highly entertaining and magically baffling which is sure to grab the attention of the crowds and will be top entertainment for the whole family.
“This show has appeal for children, teenagers, adults and even the older generation too,” said Ivan Crowdell from Solihull Lions.
“You will be left wondering just how was it all done?
“This act is crammed with magic, illusions, juggling skills, comedy, escapology, audience participation and a few surprises along the way.”
Other acts include clown prince Roger Blighty on his penny farthign cum biplane and famous local dancing stars the Phillipa School of Dance plus the Stagecoach Dance School too.
Ivan added: “It’s a not to be missed family treat – admission is free but the public are asked to be generous with their donations for some very good local causes.”
