Big Top Visit Was Refreshing Change

“I VISITED the circus with my daughter and granddaughter and it was wonderful. Everybody young and old really enjoyed themselves. Years ago summer fetes were held in the park, not any more. We all pay enough council tax to help maintain the park, which is supposed to be for the community! I do hope the circus returns in the future.”

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.
