Circus250 Focus - Circus Events - CircusTalk
The Irish Street Arts, Circus and Spectacle Network (ISACS) are delighted to host, what promises to be a fascinating panel discussion in the glorious Wexford Arts Centre, looking at the extraordinary journey of the art form of Circus.

2018 marks the 250th anniversary of the birth of Modern Circus as we know it today. In 1768, one Philip Astley began his career as an entertainment impresario and entrepreneur, when he drew out the first circus ring in the centre of London and filled it with an array of equestrian skills and performances. This soon transformed into what is widely regarded today as the birth of Modern Circus.

Event Programme
