Circus ringmaster to roll up with show in his hometown of Cleethorpes
A CIRCUS ringmaster is planning the biggest show of his career in his hometown.
Former Humberston School pupil Paul Walker, 27, will be bringing Uncle Sam's Great American Circus to Cleethorpes in the spring to start the 2013 season.
Paul already has seven years as a ringmaster under his top hat.
He worked with the Bulgarian State Circus before joining Russell's International Circus.

He spent the past summer season with them in Mablethorpe before departing for his new tent.
As reported, Russell's have arrived in Cleethorpes but asked the Grimsby Telegraph to help them find a new ringmaster after Paul's departure.
He said he had already signed a contract to leave Russell's at the end of the season and join Uncle Sam's.
The showman said his contract was due to start at the beginning of next season, but his predecessor had left earlier than planned and they needed someone to fill his boots immediately. Paul said: "I was already booked with this circus and I just came early.
"I wish Russell's well. I am now with the biggest circus in the country and we hope to visit Cleethorpes next year.
"I love the job. As soon as the show starts, everything is the responsibility of the ringmaster. It's all on his shoulders.
"Uncle Sam's has a much bigger top and transport fleet and a bigger marketing organisation.
"Our show goes on for two hours and we have two shows a day and three on Saturdays."
The ringmaster said Cleethorpes audiences can look forward to the famous Wheel of Death, motorcycle stunt riders, Nikolino the clown, hand balancing and a troupe of Kazakhstan pirates.
He expects the show to roll into Cleethorpes in February next year.
