This book has been
written in response to the need for information about Britain's most
exciting invention, the circus. How did the circus begin? How is the
circus big top erected? Who runs the major circuses in Britain? How
can I find out where they are? Where are the nearest circus schools?
What books are available on the circus? How can I buy or exchange
circus posters or programmes? Which circus websites are best
The answers to all these questions
- and many, many more - are to be found in this new edition of
Introducing the Circus, with several new features: parade of
colourful circus programmes; circus schools and youth circuses;
circus festivals; and circus heritage.
