Nieuw Circus

The Nieuw Circus (New Circus) of Ghent was built in 1894 on the plans of the architect Emile De Weerdt for the Equestrian Club of Ghent. Following its destruction in 1920 by a fire, it was architect Jules Pascal Ledoux who was entrusted with its reconstruction in 1923. In 1944, the New Circus is definitely closed. In 1947, after major structural changes to the site, G. Mahy’s garage opened its doors and gradually incorporated an exhibition site for its collection of vintage cars. It will in turn shut down in 1978 and the building will remain abandoned.
