Succot circus comes to town

There are more Succot activities in Manchester than ever before as a kosher circus adds to events staged exclusively for the Jewish community.

Camp Simcha, helping Jewish children with life-threatening diseases and their families, is running a charity circus in Heaton Park, north Manchester. Camp Simcha is becoming more active in Manchester and chief executive Neville Goldschneider said it was "important to alert the community to the need for our services". Around 2,000 people are expected at Gulliver's theme park in Cheshire, which will be reserved for Jewish guests for the third successive year. There will be three large dining succot and appropriate music played on its sound system.
