VIDEO: Clowns are back in Bognor Regis

LAUGHTER will ring out over Bognor Regis as a whole host of funny folks descend on the town.

This weekend (March 1 to 3) will be filled with fun as clowns from far and wide pay a visit as part of their annual weekend.

Having already been spotted out and about the clowns have had plenty of time to get into the party spirit.

The silly souls will leave the Butlin’s day visitors’ entrance in Gloucester Road, at 2pm on Sunday for the seafront.

They will parade along The Esplanade to Lennox Street, into the High Street and Bedford Street from where they head south along the London Road precinct. They will turn into Clarence Road on to the seafront and back to Butlin’s.

Inside Butlin’s, the clowns will perform shows and stage workshops after the official opening of the weekend at 4pm on Friday.

This year’s event is also notable for the first clown shows at the Regis Centre for almost 20 years. Two performances are taking place at 5.30pm and 7.30pm also on Friday.
