FABULOUS firebreathers, African acrobats and a traditional seasonal welcome will be helping to draw the crowds to this year's Christmas Spectacular at the Yarmouth Hippodrome.

Thousands of people look set to be thrilled as they witness daredevil acts in the eighth annual Christmas show at the famous seafront auditorium from December 13 to January 4.

This season's spectacular line up was unveiled yesterday and includes firebreathers and aerial artists from Russian troupe Equilibrium and gravity defying stunt acrobats the Kenyan Chiefs.

The two hour show also features the hilarious antics of Mexican clown Chico Rico, the glamorous Estelle Clifton dancers and Dennis the stunt diver.

And as an added festive bonus any adults who buy a ticket for the highly popular show will be given free entrance into Santa's Winter Wonderland - a new attraction based at the nearby Windmill.

The Windmill, normally a fun golfing site, has been transformed into a Christmas fantasy, with children meeting a jovial Santa and his elf helpers and colourful Lapland friends.

And the breath-taking show and promise of meeting Father Christmas has seen advance bookings more than double compare to last season.

Peter Jay, who owns both buildings said: “This year's show at the Hippodrome is the biggest spectacle around and is faster moving and thrilling than pantomimes.

“I decided to set up Santa's Winter Wonderland as the Windmill is empty over this time and I thought why not just give it a go and help brighten up people's Christmases.”

Tickets for the Christmas Spectacular cost £16, £15, £14, £12.50 or £10 for adults with children under-14 costing £10 and OAPs entering for £12.

Tickets are available by calling the box office on 01493 844172 or by visiting www.hippodromecircus.co.uk

Normal entrance for Santa's Winter Wonderland is £2 for adults and children cost £6, which includes a free gift from Father Christmas.
