Circus 1903

Experience all the thrills and daredevil entertainment of a turn-of-the-century circus when CIRCUS 1903 returns to the Southbank Centre this Christmas.

A range of dazzling new acts from around the globe will accompany favourites from last year, transporting audiences back to the wonders of the Golden Age of Circus. Undoubtedly the most charming puppet elephants on any stage, created the award-winning team behind War Horse, Queenie and Peanut will return for alongside Ringmaster Willy Whipsnade, and new for 2019, The Wheel of Death - a ginormous rotating apparatus featuring large metal hoops at each end in and on which our three performers will carry out eye-popping acrobatic skills whilst the wheel is rotating.

Joined by strong men to contortionists, acrobats to musicians, knife throwers, high wire and much more, CIRCUS 1903 will amaze, captivate audiences of all ages. CIRCUS 1903 is in town for three weeks only. Book now to avoid disappointment!
