The John Lawson Spring Circus is back at Van Hage Great Amwell for Half Term.

We’ve booked this for Annabelle’s birthday on 18th February. She’s been learning about the circus at school and recently built her very own circus, so we know she’ll be really excited to visit a real one!

Once you’re done at the circus there is still lots to see and do here for families. We love visiting the animal corner and having a ride on the miniature railway. The cafe serves very good food too. Cakes are amazing!
