The circus came to town on Saturday (August 5) when MADhurst opened the 2017 box office in The Old Library on Midhurst’s Knockhundred Row.

Dressing for the occasion to reflect this year’s carnival procession theme of ’Circus’ MADhurst organising committee chairman John Barrett was ring master for the occasion.

Also there to add to the festivities was town crier John Travers and committee members Alison Procter, The Rev David Coote, Sarah Murison and Jess Warren.

Helping to add the colour were Stockley Trading of North Street who provided the ring master’s whip and Whizzbits toy shop in West Street which provided the balloons.

The MADhurst box office will be open for ticketed events again on Friday and Saturday, August 11 and 12 and 18 and 19 from 10am-4pm.

Tickets can also be booked by phone on 07582 959 440.
