Pablo Fanque was a noted performer and proprietor of the first non-white British circus, which was popular in Victorian Britain for 30 years. He is best known today for his mention in The Beatles' "Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite."
For the benefit of Mr. Kite
There will be a show tonight on trampoline
The Hendersons will all be there
Late of Pablo Fanques Fair-what a scene
Over men and horses hoops and garters
Lastly through a hogshead of real fire!
In this way Mr. K. will challenge the world!
