We’re back for 2021 with an amazing new show with all the thrills and spills you would expect from the UK’s favourite family Circus.  And this year we are proudly supporting The Rotary Club of Great Britain. We will be visiting over 50 venues throughout our season, so that’s 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 6 am driving a lorry to our next venue (with no makeup on!!!) or the Clown who makes you laugh will also be swinging a sledgehammer to drive the 5ft stakes into the ground to secure the Big Top, But no matter how hard the work is, or how long the days are, we wouldn’t change a thing.

So leave the hard work to us and sit back and enjoy the wonderful entertainment that is John Lawson’s Circus. 

Written by

John Lawson’s circus was founded in 1974 by ringmaster ‘captain’ John Lawson and was originally titled John Lawson’s Circus De Reszke. After five years of appearing at outdoor events all over the country to great acclaim, Captain John bought a small second-hand ‘flower show’ marquee and with one Bedford lorry began touring the country with the possibly the smallest Circus in the land.
