The nearest Underground Station to the Circus is Newbury Park Station, which is on
the Central Line. This Station is in fare zone 4. It's too far to walk from this Station to
the circus, but you can get a number 66 Bus, or else a number 296 Bus instead, from
outside this Station, in the direction of Romford. The Circus is only a few stops away
on the Bus. Ask to go to Whalebone Lane North, Moby Dick Pub.
The nearest National Rail Station to the Circus is Romford Station, and you can get fast
and frequent Greater Anglia Trains to this Station, from Liverpool Street Station, and from
Stratford Station too. Romford Station is in fare zone 6. It's too far to walk to the Circus
from this Station too, but you can get a number 66 Bus, in the direction of Leytonstone, or
else a number 296 Bus instead, in the direction of Ilford. The Circus is a few more stops
away on the Bus, than from Newbury Park Station, but still near though. Once again you
need to ask to go to Whalebone Lane North, Moby Dick Pub.
You won't be able to get to Newbury Park Station on the Central Line this Saturday 27th
October, due to engineering works taking place on this Line then. These engineering works
will mean that the Central Line will be terminating at Leytonstone. You could still get to the
Circus by Bus from outside Leytonstone Station, but it'll take you quite a bit longer to do this,
than if you get a Bus from outside Romford Station to there.
You can park in the Moby Dick Car Park, which is no more than a 5 minute walk from the
Leaflets, placards and banners will all be provided for you to use, at these demonstrations.
The Great British Circus is the only circus remaining in the UK which still has big cats, their
travelling cruelty roadshow features tigers, reindeers, camels, ponies, goats, llamas and horses.
If you live in the area, please try to remove illegal posters, (be careful of circus workers though!),
and please try to ask shops and other businesses not to display them either.
Contact number for all of these demo's, except the one's on Saturday 3rd November is:
07950 574 383.
Contact number for the demo's on Saturday 3rd November is:

For more information about animals in circuses, see the website:
RSPCA says: "Boycott the circus"
RSPCA Circus FAQ's here.
This is one of only around 8 UK-based circuses using animals. However, that's 8 too many! We can't rely upon weak legislation to ban the use of animals in circuses. The Animal Welfare Bill (in its present form) is not proposing to ban this evil industry and will do little to protect any animal used. It's up to people like you to make a difference, by convincing others not to visit these mobile prisons and make them completely unprofitable and untenable.
