Hippodrome Circus

A brand new Easter Pirates Live all-action water show starts its run at The Hippodrome in Great Yarmouth from April 1.

And it will be hosting its first Pirate of The Year competition for its audience members.

The show, which has been written by popular comedy duo Jack Jay and Johnny Mac, will centre around the ferocious swashbuckling battle between pirates from all corners of the world to become Pirate of the Year and claim the prize treasure.

There will be sensational circus acts, fire breathers, and insane comedy antics all set in the immersive staging created especially for the Hippodrome’s legendary arena including the amazing pirates’ galleon.

There will also be the chance for the audience to enter the competition and take home an amazing treasure chest of Hippodrome prizes for themselves. The top prize will include VIP tickets to The Hippodrome Summer Spectacular with the best seats in the house, personalised signed posters and souvenir programme, a signed I’m Enjoying Myself T shirt from Johnny Mac and copies of The Hippodrome’s brand new DVD.

More details on the competition can be found on the Hippodrome’s official Facebook page once the show opens on April 1.

Shows run until April 23 and tickets are adults £17-£21, OAP £16-£17, child £10-£12 and there are family tickets available.
