If you ever wanted to run away and join the circus, now is your chance.

Chaplin’s Circus is visiting St Albans and will be running free community workshops for locals.

The UK’s newest all-human circus will take over the village green at Highfield Park from next Saturday, May 24, until Sunday, June 1.

And it is hoped that actor David Soul, best known for starring in Starsky and Hutch, will attend the opening night performance.

His and Julia Nickson’s (Rambo II) daughter China Soul who has recently joined the circus, will be playing the part of Ruth Etting, an American singing star and actress of the 1920s and ’30s.

Ahead of the performances however, children and adults can learn a variety of circus skills from the professionals, including juggling, magic, balloon modelling and face-painting.

Circus skills workshops include an acrobatics master-class.
