2018 marks the 250th anniversary of British circus. And here at John Lawson’s Circus our season is underway with all the thrills and spills you would expect from the UK’s favourite family Circus. We will be visiting over 50 venues throughout our season, so thats over 50 times we have to ” build up and pull down ” the Big Top so as you can imagine we work like a well oiled machine ( well most of the time!!!), All the artistes and staff help with the Big Top and moving our little village around the country plus performing in the ring and making candy floss, popcorn,hot dogs ect, when you work on a small circus you have to be multi talented and we all pitch in with the day to day logistics, so when you watch our show just remember the beautiful girl high in the roof of the Big Top will also be the girl who was up at 6am driving a lorry to our next venue ( with no make up on!!!) or the Clown who makes you laugh will also be swinging a sledge hammer to drive the 5ft stakes into the ground to secure the Big Top, But no matter how hard the work or how long the days we wouldnt change a thing.
So leave the hard work to us and sit back and enjoy the wonderful entertainment that is John Lawson’s Circus. Heres to the next 250!
