Roll up, roll up...!

Welcome to the new look Circus Mania blog - more colourful, more pictures, more searchable.

As well as refreshing the layout, I’ve gone back through the archive adding updates and pictures. So I hope you’ll scroll down to the topics and labels on the right and have a good root around in the world of circus.

Read my reviews of Trapeze, the classic big top movie starring Tony Curtis, Burt Lancaster and Gina Lollobrigida, and the atmospheric documentary Circo.

Learn about circus training in the UK. Read about the making of Amanda Holden's circus sitcom Big Top.

Explore the thorny issue of animals in the circus and read my interview with Britain’s last tiger trainer.

For something lighter, try my comedy crime serial Murder at the Circus, starring regular My Weekly characters the Blue Rinse Brigade.

You can also click on the tabs above and read extracts from Circus Mania.

Enjoy the show!
