Dozens of clowns in full regalia pay tribute to the late, great king of their kind once again in 2020
The annual service in which clowns, dressed in full costume, gather to honour the king of the clowns, Joseph Grimaldi (1778-1837), will once again take place in the All Saints Church in Haggerston. This temporary venue is larger than their usual haunt but it's still best to arrive early – many Grimaldi fans and clown admirers usually show, too, up so the pews will no doubt be packed.
