Glastonbury Circus

A Circus Tent appears at Glastonbury for the first time, closely followed in ’87 by a Circus Field, established by Theatre Field organiser Arabella Churchill to accommodate the increasing number of outdoor circus performances and tented cabarets springing up at the festival. In the later 2000s the Field becomes the place for late-night revellers to stumble through the neon-lit, tumultuous world of the infamous Trash City, a Mad Max landscape of wild emboldened performers and flaming vehicles.
