Mullumbimby sends in the best clowns for festival

MORE than 100 of the nation's most enthralling entertainers are set to descend upon Mullumbimby for the second Mullum Circus Festival in late September.

Punters can expect acrobats tumbling on grass, aerial artists swinging from grand fig trees, tight-wire walking against the backdrop of Mt Chincogan and risk-taking to birdsong. Edginess, strength, and imagination combine to create a thrilling celebration of the human body.
