END OF THE YEAR STICKER GAME: SEA THE CIRCUS!

L.G. Singh was born on a colourful dhoni at sea… but our remarkable story of The Landies’ Seafaring Circus actually begins on land! Follow our visiting troupe of oceanic nomads – amiable, fun loving and artistic, with a characteristic sea-leg-and-spirit sway – as they follow their oracles’ predictions… and put on a great show along the way. In search of fame and fortune – and a party of ‘end of year’ proportions – allow us to introduce:  the always-improvising Circus Band and forever-fetching Castenatas; Grand Master Funny Edwardo and his goofyship of Clowns; high-wire duo Robert and Tholly and their death-defying team of Acrobats and Jugglers; the tattoo-adorned and flame-marked Fire Dancers; the all-seeing, all-knowing Fortune Tellers; the mystery master Magicians; and their Circus Director and Visionary Curator, L.G. Singh.

New circus characters and artful acts will be shared daily. Trade your spare stickers for any missing ones with friends, neighbours and fellow circus fanatics… then present your completed sticker book to Main Tent HQ to redeem attractive rewards – and a chance to win the Grand Prize on 31 December 2018: a Family Resort Stay in a sister Four Seasons property. Good luck!
