THE big top of Zippo's Circus will arrive in Ayrshire later this month.

The circus will take over Low Green, in Ayr, between August 8 and August 10.

Organisers said the new line-up includes flying aerial antics from Tropicana Troupe and a new equestrian act. Audiences are sure to be amazed by high-wire artistes, who defy gravity by hanging from a trapeze bar.

They will be in the capable hands of veteran ringmaster Norman Barrett.
