This circus is about dreams coming true. My daughter was very sick and I took her to see them and now she dreams of getting better and joining them. We all went to the circus when we were young. I think we should keep the dream of the circus alive - Billy Smart's does that by being the best.

This was the best circus in the 1960s. The sounds of the generators and the smell of the sawdust. The circus of today is not the same without the elephants. (No relation to the nominator of this icon).

My favourite Icon of England has to be the Cornish Pasty.
