LETTER: We want the wheel of death

Eastbourne residents have had the privilege within the space of 10 days, of two world-class circuses - only they weren’t in Eastbourne!

The cost of bringing the Big Tops into Princes Park where they would have been easily accessible to the pedestrian traffic of townsfolk and visitor alike, was considered too expensive.

But surely the council should be encouraging the provision of such top quality entertainment by British circuses, rather than pricing them onto obscure fields, out of town!

So let’s write to the council and let them know that we want Zyair’s thrilling ‘Wheel of Death’, and the many fantastic acts of Jay Miller’s Circus, in town where we can all enjoy them.
