The Greatest museum on Earth: Circus thrills and tales

Circus:  The Greatest Museum on earth

The Marvellous

Billy Smarts, Chipperfields,

The Roundhouse has ran two Circus Fest one in 2010 and one in 2012.  These are a celebration of contemporary Circus life.

This is some of the copy from the acts - could use some of this copy for content on the programmes etc:

Professor Vanessa's Wondershow
Professor Vanessa's Wondershow 
23 - 29 Apr / Main Space

Step back in time as our Main Space is transformed into a timeless village green for a magical immersive carnival experience that celebrates the golden era of circus.

Walk through a lost world of original vintage circus side-shows dating back to the 1930s-1950s and gasp at the hair-raising aerial performances, contemporary cabaret and illusion. Peek at the headless lady if you dare, marvel at the girl in the goldfish bowl, feel the power of Electra, the 27,000 volt girl and gaze with wonder at the spectacle that unfolds around you.

The show features an enviable line up of artists from the circus, cabaret and variety world including Miss Behave, Marawa The Amazing, Jon Marshall and his Sideshow Illusions and The Insect Circus.

The show was conceived by Professor Vanessa Toulmin, Director of the National Fairground Archive in Sheffield and one of the world’s leading experts on the history of the art form
