John Lawson’s Circus was founded in 1974 by ‘Captain’ John Lawson and originally titled John Lawson’s Circus De Reszke. In September 1978 ‘Captain’ John Lawson took the plunge and bought a second-hand ‘Flower Show’ marquee and with on old Bedford lorry began touring the small villages in Kent with what was possibly the smallest circus in the country entirely run and performed by the four members of his family. The show has now grown both in size and reputation touring with international artistes and appearing on the Paul Daniels’ Magic Show, The Late Late Breakfast Show, Granada TV’s Lost Empires, BBC Two’s adaptation of Charles Dickens’ Hard Times, and the Sir Anthony Hopkins’ film, Surviving Picasso.
