Step right up!

The producers of the world’s biggest magic show, The Illusionists, have teamed up with the award-winning puppeteers from War Horse to present a thrilling turn of the century circus spectacular.

Sensational puppetry puts elephants back in the ring as never seen before, along with a huge cast of the most unique, amazing and dangerous circus acts from all four corners of the world, from strongmen to contortionists, acrobats to musicians, knife throwers, high wire and much more!

Discover the golden age of circus this summer as CIRCUS 1903 – THE GOLDEN AGE OF CIRCUS sets to captivate audiences of all ages.

Please note: The elephants featured in CIRCUS 1903 are puppets, brought to life by the talented team at Significant Object (the award-winning puppeteers from War Horse). CIRCUS 1903 is a very unique show in that it takes aspects of the traditional circus but puts a fresh, innovative and more humane spin on them. One of those new directions is using carefully constructed and realistic puppets in place of actual animals.
