Chapelfield Summer Circus, running from 11 to 15 July, is programmed by Lost in Translation Circus as part of Circus250.
CIrcus250 is a year-long nationwide celebration of 250 years of circus. In 1768 showman, entrepreneur and equestrian rider Philip Astley drew out a circle on an abandoned patch of land near London’s Waterloo and filled it with astounding physical acts. This spectacle was the world’s very first circus. All over the UK and Ireland there will be contemporary and traditional circuses, performances, exhibitions, concerts and events. The focus will fall on six designated ‘Cities of Circus’ with their long and proud history of ‘the greatest show on earth’. Norwich (together with Great Yarmouth) is one of the six alongside Bristol, Blackpool, Newcastle-under-Lyme, London and Belfast.
This event has been made possible thanks to funding from Norwich City Council, Arts Council England, Norwich Town Close Estate Charity, Geoffrey Watling Charity, John Jarrold Trust, Goodman Trust, Paul Bassham Charitable Trust, Snelling Charitable Trust, Charles Littlewood Hill Trust and The Ranworth Trust.
