Delve into the drama of the big top and explore the incredible stories behind the spectacle. With wondrous surprises for all ages, including activities and events inspired by the exhibition. Gallery highlights include the fabulous Arthur Fenwick Collection of circus art and memorabilia, a collection of national importance spanning the 1770s up to the 1950s.

The story will be brought right up-to-date with the inclusion of the Family La Bonche Collection providing an intimate and colourful look at contemporary Newcastle and North East circus communities and the contribution they make to the changing face of circus in our own times.
