Tomorrow afternoon some 2,100 of Rome's poor and homeless population, refugees, prisoners and volunteers will head to the circus, courtesy of Pope Francis.
Tickets to the performance were provided through the Papal Almoner's office, which manages the Pope's charities.
The show, announced by the Almoner's office Jan. 10, will take place the afternoon of Thursday Jan. 11, at Rome's Circo Medrano under a large tent put up specifically for the event, which has been dubbed the "Circus of Solidarity" by the organizers.
A makeshift medical station will also be set up with volunteer doctors and nurses available for attendees who want an exam or a check-up. Each participant will also be provided with a sack lunch at the end of the show.
