A circus best known for its elephant acts in the 1950s is to visit Chingford next month. 

Billy Smart's Circus will be setting up camp at Chingford Plain in Rangers Road between June 24 and 29.

The award-winning circus founded in 1946 by Mr Smart is being hosted by his granddaughter Yasmine Smart. 

The two hour show will include performances by Australia's trapeze troupe, the Flying Aces, Russian acrobats from the Asadullin Troupe, Romania's X-Treme Brothers acrobats, foot juggling and Italian born comedic-entertainer Jonny Bogino the clown.

It will perform three shows on the day of the Chingford Village Festival on June 28.
