Description

The first Sunday in February is the annual clowns church service at Holy Trinity Church in Dalston, east London. Clowns attend a church service in memory of the one of England's most celebrated clowns, Joseph Grimaldi (1778-1837). This has been an annual tradition since 1946. The service moved to Holy Trinity Church in 1959, and in 1967 permission was given for the clowns to attend in their costumes. The church service is free but donations are always welcome. Stay around for after the church service when the clowns usually perform for the public.
