Juggling is a way of life for circus children – they balance hours of rehearsals with chores and schoolwork. In our last visit to the youngsters of the big top we meet Lewis, eight. Both his parents are clowns, but as they’re separated there is a lot of travelling between two circuses for Lewis – he’s already attended 52 schools. We also hear from former tearaway Brendon, 17, who’s turned his life around since becoming a unicyclist, and Luke, 10, who’s more into Lego than tricks.
