NoFit State Circus: The early years

NoFit State Circus is celebrating its anniversary on 1 January, 30 years after five friends introduced the "new circus" movement to Cardiff.

They set up in 1986, mixing comedy theatre with circus skills including trapeze, stilt-walking, juggling and tight-rope walking.

In 1990, they toured their tented show, A Wish Washes Whiter, which led to £5,000 sponsorship for a larger tent.
