There be tigers and zebras in them there hills!

Has this camel got the hump?

 Date of Stay 6th May 2012

Well, sort of and here’s a way to enjoy a fun weekend which is sort of wild camping but not because there is a cost although not very much. My wife joined the Circus Friends Association (CFA) ties in with her her Butterfingers business.   They regularly hold events at circuses all round Europe.  In this case it was The Great British Circus at Glen Parva in Leicestershire which was there for a week.  As a member of CFA, on payment of £15 we were able to stay on the circus site,. received breakfast in the morning (bacon and egg sandwiches) a private demonstration of animal training of tigers and horses, two circus shows, unlimited access to the circus zoo and a barbecue in the evening. I know many people don’t like circuses with animals and I have my concerns but I have to say these animals looked in great shape and were very gently handled.  No whips, loud shouting etc.  Unfortunately, the field they were on flooded with the rain so we were unable to actually stay the night but they were a great bunch of friendly people from all over the country that attended and my grandson had an excellent time.  He fell in love withe the zebras thats for sure. I would say, if you can keep an open mind on the animals and don’t prejudge then this could be a really great weekend away.
