MASERU — Brian Boswell’s circus is set to visit Lesotho for a six-day funfair show at Maseru Club next week.
The circus will be part of celebrations to mark Moshoeshoe’s Day on March 11.
The show is the brainchild of a local consultancy firm Molula-qhooa Consultancy.
‘Nete Khoanyana from Molula-qhooa Consultancy said the circus will run from March 6 to 11.
Khoanyana told the Weekender the circus would give locals an opportunity to see wild animals, clowns and acrobats.
She said the circus was also a way for children to celebrate Moshoeshoe’s Day in style.
“We are bringing wildlife to the streets of Maseru, an exciting and thrilling experience for residents to see wild animals up-close,” Khoanyana said.
She said the show would include acrobats and hilarious clowns “who are going to provide an unforgettable experience”.
Residents would have a chance to see lions, tigers, elephants, horses perky poodles, acrobats and clowns during the festivity.
The last time circus entertainment was in Lesotho was in 2009.
“The circus is aimed at providing the type of entertainment that a parent knows a child can’t miss, after all we don’t have much recreation for children in the country,” Khoanyane said.
She added that the circus would also benefit schools as they usually travel to Bloemfontein to see wild animals.
Molula-qhooa Consultancy had invited schools to group their students for the circus.
“We are giving students first priority because they are a group that still learns about animals at school,” Khoanyane said.
Some morning shows had been set aside strictly for school children.
She added that Brian Boswell’s circus has been entertaining crowds for years adding she was sure they will deliver a thrilling show.
“It is not their first time in the country so they are familiar with the local audience,” she added.
