‘Pleasingly quirky and thoroughly cheerful’ Pick of the week in Guardian Guide

Circus Kids offers a unique and honest insight into a secretive and closely guarded world steeped in hundreds of years of tradition and history. These kids are professional performers by the time most children start school, and enjoy a freedom that other kids could only dream of – but away from the bright lights of the Big Top, they live off-grid at an unforgiving pace.  In this eye-opening documentary, we’ll meet kids whose families stretch back 16 generations in the circus and others who have run away to follow their Big Top dreams.
