Cirque Jules Verne
If you've taken the children to Jules Verne's house, why not go a few metres further on to see the Municipal Circus? This imposing brick and stone building was designed by Mr Jules himself! Just close your eyes and picture "César Cascabel", the entertainer who worked as a lion tamer and a clown, another of Jules Verne's creations...
for a romantic break
So you think you know all about the town of Amiens? But have you seen the Municipal Circus? It's monumental! This was certainly the effect that its creator, Jules Verne, wanted to achieve. Being very keen on the arts and culture, he created it in 1889 to breathe new life into the artistic life of the town.
About this equipment
Designed by Emile Ricquier and inaugurated by Jules Verne in 1889, the municipal circus of Amiens was designed as a multi-purpose building to welcome circus shows and various public meetings. Following a public order launched by the town of Amiens with the support of the Ministry of Culture, the project of the Austrian artist, Ernst Caramelle, was selected for the coloration of the Jules Verne Circus. Those works, started in March 2002, lasted twelve months. From now on, the renovated circus can accommodate 1,700 spectators in circus layout and 1,400 in theatre layout.
