John Lawson’s Circus!

April 15, 2017 - April 19, 2017


 John Lawsons Circus . The Award winning John Lawsons circus is back on the road for 2017 with acts from all over the world.

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.

From the first venue in Kent, September 1980 the show was again well received and has since grown both in size and reputation to its current position.

Sadly, Captain John passed away in November 1985 and the show is now run by his widow Vonni De Reszke, Daughter Daniela and Son Niven. They have endeavoured to continue the original aim of the show – to bring traditional live entertainment to smaller communities up and down the country most of which do not normally receive a great deal.

Te circus has to change and adapt to keep the increasingly sophisticated audiences happy.
John Lawson’s Circus  have tried to improve our facilities for you our audience with new toilet facilities, luxury bucket seating, improved Big Top heating and lighting. They now have what we believe to be the most entertaining troupe of artistes to augment the family ‘house’ acts!
