Why See Circus 1903 - The Golden Age of Circus?
Roll Up Roll Up!
Step back in time to the golden age of the circus with this mind-blowing new spectacular! Touring China and Europe before arriving in North America in 2017, Circus 1903 resurrects the Big Top to its former glory, packing the ring 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.
Circus 1903 is a collaboration between the producers of the world's best-selling touring magic show The Illusionists, and Significant Objects, the company which created the puppets for theatrical smash War Horse.
What to expect
The finest circus performers from across the globe will thrill you with daring acts of death-defying bravery, but Circus 1903 isn't just a roll-call of incredible acts - it's a full theatrical experience! Significant Objects have spent months designing their next generation of animal puppets, who will be brought to life performing alongside their human counterparts. A circus experience which is simultaneously a nostalgic throwback and a revolution of the form, Circus 1903 has to be seen to be believed!
Did You Know?
Everyone knows them as tight-rope walkers, but the technical term for those daring acrobats that perilously balance on a taut rope high above the ground is a 'funambulist'!

The transformation occurs onstage and is so convincing it might leave some wondering whether or not to believe their eyes - or if there really is such a thing as magic.
