Prepare to be wowed when a circus rolls up to Weston-super-Mare’s Tropicana, which will also give people the chance to learn some skills.

The Wow Weekend Of Wonders will provide a fun-filled day on October 1.

The fun gets underway at noon, where Miss Inform will be based on the seafront with her Miss Inform-ation stall.

She will be handing out priceless information for free, and promises to be a breath of fresh air in a post-truth world.

Miss Inform provide free performances until 4pm.

The main event will take place at the Tropicana, in Marine Parade, at 7.30pm, with a show packed with dazzling feats.

The audience will be mesmerised by Dizzy O’Dare’s Rise, a surreal and eclectic act combining tightwire, live music and cabaret.

Before the main show adults and teenagers can pick up skills from a strong woman, or dare to walk the tightwire in two workshops at the Tropicana.

The first, hosted by Strong Lady Productions at 2pm, will develop physical and mental strength.

People can take part in a range of exercises combining yoga, mental strength training and bodyweight exercises.

It will take 90 minutes, and is open to those aged 16 and over.

At 3.30pm, one of the UK’s leading female tightwire walkers Dizzy O Dare will provide a tutorial on this amazing skill.

It is open to people aged 12 and above.

The show and workshops cost £10 each. Workshop places can be booked by emailing and circus tickets can be bought from

The Mercury has teamed up with Theatre Tropicana to offer two pairs of tickets to the show, and two pairs for each of the workshops.

The competition closes at 10am on September 8.

Usual Archant rules apply and the editor’s decision is final.
