Svensons flea circuses and our show was started by Sven, my son.
Sven has been fascinated by the circus since he first began to talk, he always wanted to own a real circus. But, of course, he knew this was unlikely, but everyone has thier dream! However, one day when he was about 9 years old he discovered a Flea Circus picture in an old book, now here was a circus that he could own and be the ringmaster of!
So he set to creating one, and after much experimenting he created his first circus. His circus was great and everyone loved it! A few years later he had the idea of making a very small flea circus in a cigar box, again everyone loved it and he even stopped people in the street to give little shows!
My name is Eric and I'm Svens father. Svens interest in flea circuses slowly brushed off on me and as Sven got older and grew out of the Flea Circus I grew into it and turned it into a full time occupation.
Svensons have grown to become the UKs most popular flea circus show, and the worlds only full time flea circus maker! We have featured on BBC TV, Sky TV, radio, newspapers, and Svensons were the flea circus of choice for "David Attenborough's Natural Curiosities" that was shown on 'Watch TV'.

Svens interests have now wondered to fairground rides and he hopes to own a Waltzer one day, but we have him to thank for Svensons Flea Circuses, and I have him to thank for the best job in the world!
