Buy a ticket and sit in a seat inside the Big Top. This way you can buy and eat popcorn.
Get together with your pals to crawl under the side of the tent far enough so you can see what’s going on, and hear the music, and smell the popcorn and stuff.
Try to do this after the bobby has passed by, otherwise you’re going to be answering some difficult questions….
p.s. The coppers in Britain are called “bobbies” and sometimes “peelers,” in reference to Home Secretary Sir Robert Peel, who introduced an act in Parliament in 1829 to create an official police force in London. They do not routinely carry a gun.
