So, i think we’ve worked out something about the mysterious clown in this picture. This is the Rainworth Clown, the clown pretender to that of the Northampton clown’s place as hot property. You’ll see in the above article that the Northampton clown is pleased he inspired this publicity stunt for a visiting circus, and that the clown in the picture is even a woman!
I’d heard its name mentioned, but failed to see this from last week. Also they have a page over on facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Rainworthsclownpage
Could the other numerous sightings be part of a big publicity stunt for a travelling circus? With new sightings of a clown in more areas of Doncaster (Intake, Cantley and Balby) and York, Bolton and Burnley, you could say that this seems to be mainly a Northern phenomenon, could there be a big coordinated effort for some huge publicity stunt?
Please keep the info coming in, and thanks too everyone who’s come forward with news (Unknown, Joanne and Laura)
