A major new exhibition created in partnership between Museums Sheffield and The University of Sheffield’s National Fairground and Circus Archive is set to mark the 250th anniversary of circus in Great Britain in 2018. Celebrating the drama and pageantry of the circus and the performers who brought it to life, the exhibition will chronicle the development of circus in the UK and explore its social and cultural impact over the past two centuries.
Circus! forms part of a major partnership project between Museums Sheffield, The University of Sheffield, Norfolk Museums Service and Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums which will see concurrent exhibitions go on show in Norwich and Newcastle.
25th July – 4th November 2018
