INTO THE CIRCUS AT OUT OF THE BLUE

A free circus day day for children will run at Out of the Blue from 11am to 4.30pm on Saturday 10 April.

The event – to include trapeze lessons, face painting and a short show by Strangebird Zirkus – is to raise money for Edinburgh-based charity Edinburgh Direct Aid (EDA).

EDA personally delivers aid to those in dire need of it, such as Kenyan AIDS orphans, special-needs kids in Bosnia, and homeless people in Gaza.

Out of the Blue is based at Out of the Blue Drill Hall, 36 Dalmeny Street, Edinburgh EH6 8RG. Tickets and information from www.outoftheblue.org.uk.
