A Hitchin primary school is to welcome the fun of the circus next weekend for a fundraising day.

Happy’s Circus will be at Samuel Lucas JMI School, off Gaping Lane, on Saturday, June 23.

The school’s parent-teacher association will provide refreshments, face painting, a raffle and much more.

Samuel Lucas PTA chair Natalie Gray said: “We are holding the circus at Samuel Lucas to provide a fun – and great-value – afternoon for the whole family, and to raise much-needed money so the school can purchase new IT equipment, upgrade the school library books and get a new library IT system.

“We would love to see as many Hitchin families come along and support us.”

Happy’s will also be selling circus-related merchandise on the day. No animals are used in the show.

Gates open at the Samuel Lucas school field at 1pm, and the show runs from 2pm to 4pm. Tickets are £10 from
