Circus & Music Hall
Heather first tumbled into the circus and music hall arena when researching her 19th century eccentric personage many moons ago.
More recently the opportunity arose to delve deeper into the archives unearthing little known daring and secretive acrobats to write about.
She regularly wrote for Ripperologist Magazine, is writing a book about 19th century aerialist Lulu and is excited to be exhibiting under the Circus 250 umbrella.
'Six Cities of Circus' celebrated 250 years since Philip Astley opened his first performance space at Halfpenny Hatch, in London in 1768. Heather worked with the Bristol research and planning group. She had an exhibition at The Christmas Steps Gallery in Bristol and exhibited at Bristol Museum & Art Gallery. She is working on other exciting projects including writing, artwork and a return to The Venice Biennale.
