Professor’s new wonder show

Have your say

A SERIES of spectacular circus shows created by a Sheffield university professor are set to wow audiences at the London Roundhouse Theatre later this month.

Professor Vanessa Toulmin, director of The University of Sheffield’s National Fairground Archive, is curating, directing and producing the event as part of Circus Fest 2012.

Professor Vanessa’s Wondershow will transform the Roundhouse Theatre’s Main Space to create a magical immersive carnival experience that celebrates the golden era of circus.

Audiences will be able to walk through a lost world of original vintage circus sideshows dating back to the 1930s and gasp at hair-raising aerial performances.
