Clown Alex Morley, 23, grew up in Watton but joined Russells three years ago.

He said: 'We are shaking up the image of the circus with our use of lighting and sound.

'It is a chance for everybody to come and enjoy themselves. It is one of the cheapest forms of entertainment around and it is still as magical as it was all those years ago.'

The show includes 15 performers from Britain and abroad and includes a Romanian juggler who has reached the final of the television show Romania's Got Talent.

It is the fifth year Russells has come to Sheringham.
