Year of the Circus

29 January 2018

Norwich is deeply rooted in the history of circus, as it was the birthplace of the famous 19th century black circus proprietor Pablo Fanque. Meanwhile, in Great Yarmouth, the Hippodrome remains Britain’s only surviving complete circus building so we have much to contribute to the Equity UK-wide efforts to mark two-and-a-half centuries of all things circus.

A lot will be happening throughout 2018 in our area and across the country and we will discuss some of the plans at the branch meeting in February.
