The building is named after the first black circus proprietor in Britain and the reception foyer will contain a poetry wall telling the story of Mr Fanque, in addition to a large neon sign of The Beatles lyrics from the song ‘For The Benefit of Mr Kite’ which mentions Mr Fanque. The opening of the building coincides with Norwich being named one of the ‘Six Cities of Circus’ to celebrate 250 years of circus.

The five bedroom property has been built by Dobson Construction with a beam and block ground floor being supported off the in-situ concrete basement walls. The 65mm x 215mm x 600mm Thermoblocks were supplied through a local stockist and have been laid on a mortar bed with the special Marmox Multibond adhesive being used to seal the stepped joints between the units.
