my fellow dj from waves graham opened the circus in 1976 i think,i used to live in miles platting just over the road. i saw motorhead,scorpions,the pirates and lots of others here,it was the mutts nuts.the best band i ever saw were on here,they were called loving awareness.they were radio carolines house band and were very beatles+badfinger influenced.they later became the blockheads,ian durys band.i wish i had a tape of the gig!charley charles the drummer joined us in the foyer for a smoke after coming off stage,he was bouncing off the walls with energy,a lovely man,now sadly deseased.

I still look back at the site every time i pass it and it still upsets me. Denise
Hi Bernie, I'm making a documentary, with all of my profits going to Kidneys for life. I'd like to use your photo of the electric circus for the film. Could you please get in touch so I can tell you a bit more. Many thanks Chris
