  1. Handbill: Grimaldi (Clown) at Sadler’s Wells Aquatic Theatre.
  2. Rare handbill with a listing an evening of music, drama and pantomime including a Clown Show by Grimaldi. Circa 1810. Joseph Grimaldi was a popular entertainer of his day. Born in 1778 his stage career began at the age of two appearing on stage with his father. He perfected the role of the clown and his trade mark white face is still the image clowns use today. In 1823 he retired due to injuries caused by his energetic clowning. He died aged 58 in 1837. Sadler’s Wells Aquatic Theatre as it was known at the time was so called because the stage featured a large water tank (water fed from the New River) in which spectacular water based plays could be performed, such as The Siege of Gibraltar which featured floating ships and drowning actors. In 1803 under the management of Charles Dibdin the water tank was installed. This handbill says that Dibdin was also the writer and producer of whole of the entertainment. The water tank was removed some time in the 1820s.
    Condition: fine.
