Circus 1903

There's nothing quite like going to the Circus there's something quite special about the atmosphere and live daring acts, but Circus 1903 brings the audience the golden age of circus, so we couldn't wait to be transported back to 1903 to experience the ultimate circus experience.

The show kicked off with a few laughs from Ringmaster Willy better known as David Williamson a  comedy magician who is known worldwide, lucky for us ringmaster Willy also had a few stage segments which involved audience participation, the audience roared with laughter, he defiantly kept us entertained us immensely,

Circus 1903 is an internationally acclaimed family circus spectacular and features thrilling and dangerous acts that the whole family will love. We were in awe and on the edge of our seat in anticipation as we watched The Flying Finns aerialists fly through the air on their teeterboard, it was breathtaking to watch, then there was the sophistication of Lucky Moon who is an aerial ballet performer who wowed the audience with her high flying moves. The most dangerous act of the night had to be A Flight Of Knives which is an artistic exhibition of knife impalement, jaw-dropping moments as the knives whizzed through the air narrowly missing the performer.

from acrobats and the Juggling Juggernaut to the high wire performance of Los Lopez just to name a few, were amongst the array of stunning performances from across the globe we had the pleasure to watch.

We also had the opportunity to watch life-sized elephants grace the stage which was created by award-winning puppeteers to bring the 1903 circus experience to life. Circus 1903 was a feast for the eyes and mesmerising to watch the ultimate circus experience which will be loved by all.

Circus 1903 is on at the Southbank Centre this Christmas for its European Premiere from 19th December 2018 - 5th  January 2019. for more information and how to book check out
