On Sunday, Mighty Smith (pictured right) will perform in a strong man show at 12.45pm and 3.15pm. Come along and be impressed by his show of strength.

On Sunday there will also be a circus skills workshop by Scotty's Circus Workshop - you can try your hand at plate spinning, using magic wands and bean bag juggling, among other things.

Slough's Deputy Mayor Councillor Avtar Cheema will attend on the Sunday.

Lynsey Hellewell, the council’s events organiser, said: “We love hosting this event every year. It always draws great crowds of people who enjoy spending time by the canal and watching the arena shows.”
