LEARN ABOUT OUR SHOW, OUR PERFORMERS, OUR ANIMALS, AND OUR FAMILY

Hanneford Family Elephants

     There have been Hannefords performing in show business since the seventeenth century, including stage and screen, but particularly in the circus. One, Edmund, was a favorite of England's King George III. Another, Poodles, was, and still is, acknowledged as the greatest comedy bareback rider of all time and starred in silent movies, some directed by Fatty Arbuckle. Many generations of the family have starred with Ringling Brothers And Barnum & Bailey Circus - including George and Victoria and their daughter, Catherine. To read more about our family go to our FAMILY page. To read more about our family history, as well as a general circus history, go to our HISTORY page.
     Today there are two main branches of the family represented in the circus world: Tommy and Strupi Hanneford, who own and produce the Royal Hanneford Circus, traveling all over the eastern U.S.A., and George and Victoria Hanneford, who own and produce the Hanneford Family Circus, now in their TENTH year of residency at the famous FORT LAUDERDALE SWAP SHOP - the ONLY circus in the world that can been seen performing live most days on the internet via web cam. Go to the SHOW pages to find out about the times of the shows, our current performers, pictures from the show, a link to see the show, and just what it takes to put on a great circus - including a behind the scenes peek at our animals, and a look at our one-man-eight-arms sound, lighting, and musical director's console.
