CIRCUS promoter Tony Hopkins, celebrates 40 years of promoting his own Circus shows, by bringing his 2023 production of Circus Montini to the Scottish Borders.

Since the start of his career in 1983 – Yorkshire man Tony Hopkins has promoted and toured family favourites such as Chipperfields Circus, Gerry Cottle's Circus, the Netherlands National Circus, Billy Smarts Circus, Circus Fiesta.

A deliberately down-sized show has been created to be able to take the show to places that do not often see a circus but without reducing the quality or quantity of the acts or production.

Border Telegraph: Circus Montini

Circus Montini brings spectacular entertainment to towns and cities all over the country,

It follows in the wheel tracks of those great circuses of the past and is returning to the ethos of taking a family show to the people, creating a memorable experience on their doorstep.

Once again Tony has assembled a very strong programme for the 2023 production.

He said: “The show is made up of a fantastic array of really top artistes including a stunning unicyclist from Argentina, jugglers and some brilliant break-dancers from Hungary, Antipodiste artistes from Ethiopia, the amazing contortionist Stefany Narballes (a huge star in Cuba.)

“Circus Montini is a fast-moving programme and, of course, includes clowns such as Petro who has joined the show from Ukraine.

“Circus Mortini may just have succeeded with a blend of high British standards of presentation and with the excitement of international performance.”

Circus Montini will be at Hawick Commn Haugh for three days: Monday May 8 3pm and 7pm, Tuesday May 9 4.45pm and 7pm and Wednesday May 10 4.45pm and 7pm.
