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.

    Brilliant show today at Wychbold. All the acts were fabulous. Thoroughly enjoyed the show, thank you. Excellent value for money. Good luck.

    Just home after attending the great performance at Squires garden centre@ Badshot Leas, Surrey. My 10 year old & 7 year old loved it – as did I, especially when I performed as part of Rudys act with a cowbell! Great mix of acts all of whom are very talented & presented by a terrific showman, 10/10 – we will come again when you are next in town!
