Mr Fips Wonder Circus is a small, family run circus, who during their latest season will travel up the east of England until their season draws to a close in November. They are a company of around 20 performers, all family and friends from the circus community and their youngest member is 12 years old and their oldest is 75 years old. The troupe formed three years ago when Jan Erik Brenner and his wife Carolyn decided that they wanted to return the circus to the intimacy and magic of their childhood memories, and now play to audiences of between 100 and 500 adults and children.
