Här på Barnhuskällaren gavs den 18 okt. 1787 den första cirkusföreställningen i Sverige. Evenemanget genomfördes av den engelska konstberidarfamiljen JAMES PRICE. De stannade här till den 9 juni 1788 och väckte stort uppseende med den för Sverige nya underhållningsformen. Carl-Michael Behan blev så imponerad att han skrev en hyllningsdikt till Fru Price ära.
