The Hippodrome’s Christmas Spectacular starts on Saturday and will offer a night families will never forget.

International artists include the Globe of Death with dare devil motor bike riders direct from Chile and Argentina with amazing new tricks and the giant death defying wheel from Bulgaria and Moldova, doing stunts that look impossible.

“Don’t miss it!”

Jack Jay said: “It’s a special time of year and this is a special show, a real family treat, we advise everyone to book early to avoid disappointment as many of the shows have already sold out!”
