The Hippodrome’s Christmas Spectacular ends its record-breaking run this weekend.

Performers will take to the ring to stage their last three shows at 1.30pm and 5.30pm tomorrow and at 1.30pm on Sunday.

The show features incredible acts from across the globe including hand balancers and jugglers, fire eaters and cloud swingers.

Also appearing are the popular Wheel of Death performers alongside dancers, swimmers, acrobats and a large children’s group from Dance Estelle.

Jack Jay hosts with Tom Gaskin making a triumphant appearance as Jacks Christmas comedy sidekick.

Organisers say this has been the most successful Christmas show ever at the Hippodrome and tops a fantastic 2015 for the venue which saw it host a range of hit shows as well as the children’s choir on BBC’s Children in Need.

Hippodrome owner Peter Jay said: “We have had an amazing year and I thank all the artists and staff who have worked so hard to make this possible. Jack has done an amazing job as producer, writer and director with all these new shows and has taken the Hippodrome to new heights.
