Norman Barrett, 78, from Blackpool, has been a ringmaster for 56 years and still loves the bright lights of the circus.
Mr Barrett said: “We are all friends and there is a friendly atmosphere.
“I’ve worked in circuses all my life and wouldn’t want to do anything else.”
The circus, which features musical clowns The Rastellis and Guiness World-Record holding strongman Hercules, is in town until tomorrow.
Tickets, priced from £7, are available from zippos.co.uk.
