If you require information from the Dictionary of British Circus Biography database to form the basis of your own research and publication plans, please contact me. In addition to the biographical database I have nearly 7,000 records of the locations of circuses, mostly 20th century but also 19th century.

Let me help you with the background research you need to do for the preparation of your article or book! All I ask in return is for you to acknowledge the help you have received from me and the Circus Friends Association of Great Britain.
