Flyer from our first ever show




The Rapide Brothers were formed back in 1991 by brothers Ian and Gavin Radforth, AKA Izzo and Malteser.

We were encouraged and supported in the clowning by local Wakefield clown Ted Pickles, he taught us the beginning skills of stagecraft and performance. Eager to learn more we joined Leeds based youth circus called “Circus Zanni”. Now many years later we are skilled clowns jugglers and unicyclists. We have worked at all kinds of venues from large theatres to children’s birthday parties.
