This year's amazing production features world-class artistes honouring a British theme. One minute you'll be in fits of laughter, and the next you'll be on the edge of your seat!
Under our purpose-built Big Top tents, prepare to be entertained, mesmerised and amazed as soon as you enter. Introduce your children to the fun of the circus, while embracing the nostalgia it brings back for you.
From dazzling displays high in the air to thrill-seeking feats, you'll see some of Europe's best acrobats, clowns and performers during our summer breaks.
Please note: due to the tiered seating under the Big Top, you may be asked to take babies and toddlers out of their prams/pushchairs to watch the show.
