UniverSoul Circus performers visiting Central Library on Tuesday, April 10
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - Members of the UniverSoul Circus will present a mini-performance and Q&A at the Central Library downtown from 4 to 5 p.m. on Tuesday, April 10. 

Their appearance is free and open to the public, and comes as the troupe that has performed across the nation brings its 25th anniversary celebratory tour to Birmingham. The circus will have ticket and merchandise giveaways for attendees. Birmingham hip-hop station WBHJ-FM 95.7 JAMZ will do a live broadcast on-site at the Central Library beginning at 3 p.m.  

UniverSoul Circus is celebrating 25 high-flying years as North America’s top-ranked venue for music, laughter and performance artistry.  Its single-ring big top has been set up in Birmingham outside Legion Field from Tuesday, April 11 through Sunday, April 15, for an unforgettable journey of electrifying, edge-of-your-seat performances. .  Read more about UniverSoul Circus at this link: Tickets are on sale now at or 800-745-3000.

UniverSoul Circus features a multicultural conglomeration of performers from virtually every corner of the globe, including Trinidad and Tobago, Gabon, Central Africa, South Africa, Guinea, Ethiopia, Cuba, Peru, Mexico and the United States.  

“This has been an amazing journey and a fantastic ride,” said Cedric Walker, Founder and CEO of UniverSoul Circus. “Generations have witnessed our growth and have evolved with us. We want our fans to know they will always be a part of the UniverSoul Circus family. Consider us a community-minded, family-oriented, spiritually-uplifting entertainment revival for families across America.” 

Earlier in 2018, in a special outdoor ceremony in Sarasota, FL, The Circus Ring of Fame Foundation, Inc. selected UniverSoul founder Cedric Walker for induction into the prestigious Circus Ring of Fame in recognition of his “outstanding contributions to circus arts and culture.”
