Your Ideas

During the course of Simon’s journey around England members of the public were invited to post ideas of events and leisure pursuits that he could photograph, thereby positioning him alongside his fellow countrymen and attempting to involve the ‘English', to a certain degree, in their own representation. The ideas that were posted provide an interesting snapshot of the country in 2008 and work alongside Simon’s photographs. They illustrate what's important to people and explore their own thoughts on notions of Englishness.

Hi Simon,

Martin Burton, the proprietor of Zippos Circus, would like to invite you and your family to come to the circus to meet him and the eclectic circus artistes who make up this diverse and magical travelling community.

You would be given a normally unseen glimpse into the circus world - including seeing the trailers where the artistes live to finding out what really goes on behind the scenes. And of course you would also get to see the show (and maybe join in yourselves!)

Zippos Circus is England's largest traditional touring circus, with the Big Top moving locations every week until November 2008.

To see more about the circus and where we'll be, please visit or call 07980 820420.

We hope to welcome you to the circus soon and wish you the best of luck with your project!
