Went to see the Netherlands National Circus today at Trentham Gardens in Stoke on Trent, we had great ring side seats and could see everything, the show was good, with some very good acts. During the second part there was two girls who were swing from a net which was hung from the roof, all of a sudden during the act there was a snap sound and the two girls fell from mid air and hit the floor and such speed. They fell a good 10 feet or so, you could tell from there faces they were in serious pain. The music cut, the lights fell and they were carried off the stage and the show went on. After the show there was a number of ambulances outside the tent. Hope they was ok.
The circus has a website at www.netherlandscircus.eu and they are in Stoke on Trent until the end of this week. Photo’s shown are of the show today, but not the girls fall.
