Pleased To See Park Being Used

“WE would like to give a point of view as residents of Meriton Road, Handforth and say that we were pleased to see the park being used for a family event. The circus took great care not to damage local property. On the morning of the circus leaving, the park looked lovely. We hope that this will be one of many family events coming to our park. So it is again a happy family place.”

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.
