Tickets for Circus Bronett.

It is now possible to buy tickets for the premiere in Circus Bronett – Sweden. The tickets can be bought now and the premiere will be in Malmo in August. It was the plan that Circus Bronett should have been on the road in 2004 but economic difficulties occurred and the start was cancled. Circus Bronett is owned by Henry Bronett and he was the circus man together with his brother Robert Bronett behind circus Scott. Circus Scott had long tradition in Swedish circus history with fantastic international performances. Lots of financial problems forced the brothers to close down circus Scott after the season in 2003. Now Henry tries again but without his brother Robert who is responsible for the Lavade horse show – a special horse performance mixed with traditional circus acts, the Spanish high School and show. There is still no official program for the Circus Bronett premiere.

It has been a tradition that circus Scandinavia invites kids in circus twice a year. The reason is to show the young people that there is other ways to be amused than sitting by the computer. This time we were visiting circus Arena in Copenhagen and they had a few nice hours together with the artists. The next visit will be in the autumn when circus Scandinavia will take a lot of kids to circus Dannebrog when they are in Copenhagen in September. This visit was started with lots of Pizza and soft drinks before the performance and in the break it was possible to buy lots of circus souvenirs.
