Roll Up, Roll Up!

Blending acrobatics, performance art and cutting-edge puppetry, Circus 1903 resurrects the Big Top to its former glory. Created by the minds behind The Illusionists and the puppeteers behind War Horse, this fabulous show is ready to hit London's Southbank in a dazzling throwback to the circus' golden age and a thrilling evolution of the form.

In this theatrical experience of a life-time, the ring is packed with acrobats, jugglers, clowns and a wondrous, life size puppet of an African Elephant! All of the performers are dressed in the finest retro costumes and presiding over proceedings is a mustachioed ringmaster with a top hat and a mischievous glint in his eye.

Don't miss out on this dazzling spectacular as it lights up the Royal Festival Hall for a strictly limited run this Christmas!
