The historic Hippodrome Circus in Great Yarmouth celebrates its 111th year with its all action Summer Circus and Water Spectacular until September 21.

The show is presented in the Hippodrome’s brand new Opera House setting, inspired by the Phantom of the Opera at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas, made by 3d Creations of Gorleston who created the stunning Easter show’s pirate galleon.

Britain’s last surviving circus building stages its brand new blockbuster extravaganza with amazing international circus artists, comedians, dancers, swimmers, acrobats and mind-blowing feats of daring, including the amazing globe riders who perform incredible feats in a giant globe.

This summit of extreme circus stunts continues with the wheel of death, the gravity defying human hamster wheel, staring Gengis Van Gool; madcap comedy genius from Las Vegas, Vladimir Georgievsky; comedy stars Jack Jay and Johnny Mac; Polish strongmen Duo Creative; Dolce and Gabanna models who star in the arena’s water spectacle and much much more including springboard troupe the Alinte troupe.

Jack Jay and Johnny Mac are now firmly established as one of the country’s leading double acts and the 2014 show features a new, specially written, summer comedy feast that includes plenty of hilarious slapstick and water comedy moments.
