Weber's Circus hits Tamworth for the first time in 24 years

Roll up, roll up: Sierra Silver is literally the girl that ran away with the circus and hasn't looked back. Weber’s Circus is in town and entertaining Tamworth families, but you'd better be quick.

Roll up, roll up: Sierra Silver is literally the girl that ran away with the circus and hasn't looked back. Weber’s Circus is in town and entertaining Tamworth families, but you'd better be quick.

The Russian Swing and The Wheel of Death are just two of the spectacles on display at the Tamworth Showground this weekend.

For the first time in 24 years Weber’s Circus has returned to town, and owner Natalie Weber believes that people would be hard pressed to find “two hours of family entertainment” at the same standard as her performers are throwing down.

The 28 strong traveling troupe have former Australian gymnast Paul Branson as the coach and architect of all their high flying tricks, flips and trapeze acts, while the show ponies, trick dogs, whip cracking and plenty more will have spectators jaws on the floor.

“We always change up our acts and have had this Wild West show going for about a year,” Mrs Weber said.

“Tamworth is a lot different from the last time we were here 24 years ago, but we still have plenty of entertainment on offer.” 

The circus will be holding some final shows at 3pm and 7pm Saturday, before the grand finale at 11am on Sunday before packing up and heading to Armidale and then on to Moree and QLD.
