The Streatham-born spectacle that remembers its roots

Pictured are jugglers at Zippos Circus, which is holding a Legacy Tour to mark the 250th anniversary of circus. Martin Burton, founder and owner of the circus, feels proud of the continuing place of Zippos in the ongoing story of circusĀ in Lambeth. Martin first opened Zippos 40 years ago at Streatham Common. Geraldine Mary Harmsworth Park (by the Imperial War Museum) was a regular early venue, and today Zippos routinely visits open spaces across South London, including Clapham Common.
