UK Circus Performers Protest Licenses

Circus owners in the UK are protesting a new law that will require them to get licenses for every place that they perform. “Licences, which could cost up to £500 each, will be needed when the Licensing Act 2003 comes into force in April. The act is designed to ensure public safety and has already prompted outrage from other performers, including folk singers and Punch and Judy operators.”
