The Times has teamed up with Zippo’s to offer 10 pairs of family tickets (two children and two adult tickets) in a free competition giveaway.

To be in with a chance of wining a family ticket answer the following question:

What was the name of Yasmine’s famous grandfather?

Send your answers on a POSTCARD to: Zippo’s competition, Brent & Kilburn Times, 100A Avenue Road, London, NW3 3HF.

Or alternatively email lorraine.king@archant.co.uk please title your email circus competition.

Please include a daytime phone number.

Closing date is November 13.

For the final time this year the circus is back in town and it promises to be as big as ever.

Zippo’s Circus will be opening its doors to the public in Wembley from November 16 to 18.

Ringmaster Norman Barrett MBE and equestrienne Yasmine Smart are just two of the big names who promise to entertain the audience.

Norman was the ringmaster of the Tower Circus in Blackpool for 25 years and has been the subject of TV’s This Is Your Life, a rare accolade especially among circus performers.

He was awarded the MBE in the 2010 Queen’s Birthday Honours list.

Yasmine, 54, is the grand-daughter of the famous Billy Smart and was familiar to TV audiences as ringmistress of her family’s annual televised events before starring in big tops across Europe and in America.

She is also one of the few circus artistes in the world to have won a Gold Clown - the ‘Oscar’ of the circus arts. Other acts include the Globe Of Death where three motorcyclists are sealed inside a steel-mesh ball as they hurtle past one another at 60mph and the acrobatic Kenya’s ‘Zulu.

Zippo’s will be at the Palace of Arts Site situated at the corner of Empire Way and Engineers Way.
