Children had fun clowning around with tightrope walking, stilts, plate spinning and juggling on offer at a special circus fun day.

The Delph Hill Action Group in Bradford hosted the workshop for children of all ages and chairman Nicola Johnson said it is definitely something they will try to do again.

She said: “Loads of children came ranging from about four to 14, it was fabulous.

“We got funding from Bradford Community Chest this time round – if we can get funding again it’s definitely something we’d do again.”

Bradford-based circus group Urban Circus Arts were on hand to teach the skills at the day-long workshop at Delph Hill Community Centre in Summer Hall Ing.

The children made their own brightly coloured bow ties and hats for the event.

Miss Johnson said: “We had a lot of fun making them and they looked great.”
