The Lost in Translation Circus big top will be opening for performances and workshops in The Walks across this weekend and the Mini Meet in the Tuesday Market Place, King’s Lynn, returns this Sunday.

King’s Lynn Summer Circus is supported by Arts Council England and is a collaboration between Lost in Translation, the borough council, Creative Arts East, and Alive Corn Exchange. The full programme of circus events taking place in The Walks park is available here:

All circus events are free, but big top performances require free tickets to be booked in advance. There are only a small number of tickets left to all performances. They can be booked by visiting The Walks café or online through Creative Arts East here:

On Sunday, 4 September, fans of Mini cars can see almost 200 of them, both modern and vintage, parked up in the Tuesday Market Place and enjoy a free family day out.

As well as a variety of Minis, there will be live music from Carnaby Sound, Sub Tones and The Grove Hounds during the day.

Cllr Graham Middleton, Deputy Leader and Cabinet member for Business, Culture and Heritage, said:

“The borough council has organised or supported events every weekend throughout the summer holidays that have brought thousands of people into King’s Lynn town centre.

“This is the last weekend before children head back to school and we have a lot for people of all ages to enjoy. Amazing circus acts performing in The Walks, iconic Minis and more great live music in the Tuesday Market Place.

“Even though schools go back next week, we still have Sunday 11 September to look forward to as well. Historic buildings open their doors and more amazing cars will be parked in the Tuesday Market Place for Heritage Open Day and the Classic Car Show. I can’t wait!”
