From Friday 6th July 2018 to Sunday 8th July 2018
The weekend of the Lord Mayor’s Celebrations is always huge fun, however for 2018 there is an added circus element. Norwich has a significant circus heritage and so along with Great Yarmouth has been selected as one of ‘Six Cities of Circus’ in the UK.
Norwich will host a range of exciting circus-themed events as part of the ‘Circus250’ celebrations with one of the high profile events being the Lord Mayor’s Celebrations which will feature a circus-themed parade with life-sized elephant puppets winding through the streets. Following this, there will be a Big Top circus festival in Chapelfield Gardens. The elephant parade has been inspired by PT Barnum’s Norwich circus parade of 1898.
