Mother Africa is at Grimsby Auditorium on Saturday March 30, at 7.30pm.

Lean back, relax and forget about the cold weather. Welcome to Mother Africa - the Circus of the Senses.

Come and join a stirring journey to the colourful world of Africa and a celebration of its glorious attitude to life in a veritable firework display of circus art and emotion.

Artists from nine different countries, vivid costumes, foot-tapping rhythms, breathtaking acrobatics, energetic dancing and the sheer joy of life - that’s Mother Africa.

Over one million spectators have been enthralled by Mother Africa on its tours of Europe, Australia, Africa, the Middle East and New Zealand during the last six years, and it was a big hit on its UK debut at last August’s Edinburgh Fringe, leading Edfest magazine to declare: “I don’t think a single audience member left unimpressed or disappointed”, while The List described it as: “A vitamin injection of sunshine”.

All of the artists taking part have been trained at the Circus College established in Dar-es-Saalam, Tanzania, by Mother Africa director Winston Ruddle.

The skills the college offers are taught for free and the most talented students are given the chance to tour the world with Mother Africa, which, for most of them, is a life-changing opportunity. Mother Africa also makes an annual donation from its profits to German actor Karl-Heinz Böhn’s charitable trust, Menschen für Menschen, which provides aid for Ethiopia.
