"Welsh gold and African diamonds”…the arch of a rainbow

Cheesy? Perhaps. Poetic? Most definitely. True? I believe so.

My name is Beca Lewis Jones and I am the Project Officer for Mzansi Cymru.

This massive marquee dome is the  home of Zip Zap Circus - well home for another two years until the developers move in and move Zip Zap out.
