Nineteenth century Leeds hosted many visiting circuses. Within the city centre, there were at least twelve different sites regularly used for circus performances. This informative guided Victorian circus walk will take participants to visit all twelve sites in the centre of Leeds that were used for circus during the nineteenth century. Some of these may have only been used on a small number of occasions, others were used for many years. The guided walk will stop at each location where further information will be given about the colourful circuses and performers who appeared there.
