Happy First Day of Circus to everyone!
On 9th January 1768 equestrian, entrepreneur and showman Philip Astley drew out a ring and filled it with astonishing acts – tumblers, horses, acrobats, jugglers, clowns. He created the first circus. Every circus, anywhere in the world, began at that moment.

To mark the 250 years anniversary of Circus, several celebrations will happen in Ireland and the UK in 2018! See our article on Circus 250 Ireland - First Projects! for various projects happening in Ireland.
