Roll up, roll up, for all the thrills and daredevil entertainment of Circus 1903, back this year after thousands of people flocked to Southbank Centre last Christmas!

From the producers of one of the world’s biggest magic shows, The Illusionists, the turn-of-the-century Circus 1903 promises heart-stopping, jaw-dropping spectacle in abundance.

This year’s show will feature many of the best loved acts from last year, including Peanut and Queenie, undoubtedly the most charming elephants on any stage around the world, alongside ringmaster David Williamson.

A range of new acts from around the world will join the troupe to astound and delight audiences across the UK. 

From sensational larger-than-life elephants in the ring – stunningly crafted by the puppeteers behind War Horse – to dangerous acts from all corners of the globe, its broad cast never fails to leave you astounded. The show arrives in London fresh from wowing audiences at the Paris Theatre in Las Vegas.

This year marks 250 years since the world’s first ever 42ft circus ring was laid down on an abandoned patch of land in Waterloo by the ‘father of modern circus’, Philip Astley.

With contortionists, acrobats, jugglers, trapeze and high wire performers – and much, much more – Circus 1903 will transport audiences of all ages to the mesmerising Golden Age of circus.
