BE prepared to be amazed at the Love Lennox Carnival in the coastal village this Saturday.

Suffolk Park street performer Shep Huntly will be performing his Bed of Forks stunt at the second annual carnival which this year has a circus theme.

Shep's show certainly fits that bill. He says "I'm my own circus".

As part of his show, he will lie on the bed of forks and then a 10-pin bowling ball is involved - but we can't tell you much more.

Shep has been a street performer since the early 1990s, having been an "adventurous child" who also performed in school plays in his country Victoria home town.

His Bed of Forks stunt is in evolution of a bed of nails performance.

And, with all his stunts, they all had a point where he, from an idea, had to set up and perform them in reality for the first time.

"It was scary trying this stunt (Bed of Forks) for the first time," he said.

"But there has to come crunch time and you've got to go 'now I'm going to try this'."

His show is at 10.30am and after 1.30pm. The carnival is organised by the Lennox Head Chamber of Commerce.
