A cracking night out at the Circus

Sue King, the local author kept the members enthralled on the first of our ‘Winter Talk’ Series at Mylchreest Court recently.

Everyone enjoyed an interesting and beautifully presented talk from Sue on ’19th Century Circus on the Isle of Man’.

Starting in 1802 from humble beginnings in the Rope Yard on South Quay through nearly 100 years to The Hippodrome with its amazing water finale. Tales of death-defying acts, cannonball catching and clever clowns were both fascinating and humorous and everyone attending agreed that its was a fantastic evening.

Thanks again Sue and everyone who came along.
