Britain's Favourite Circus comes to Central Park (East Ham) this May!(1 Post)
Zippo's Circus first came to life in 1986 when four performers including founder and driving force Martin ‘Zippo’ Burton began putting on shows in a tiny marquee. Now, over 30 years later, the full-blown and nationally famous circus tours Britain each year greeting old friends and making new ones.
From the first, the style was fresh and original, and audiences took this imaginative new version of the traditional circus to their hearts. Zippo's has several times been voted 'Britain's Best Circus', delighting audiences from Inverness to Brighton.
For its 2017 tour, family favourite Zippo’s presents a brand new production Jigit! celebrating the show's sensational new equestrian and fearless acrobatic marvels. The thundering hooves of acrobatic Cossack riding gallop into the UK circus ring for the first time in 30 years with the appearance of the Khadikov Jigit Riders from Kazakhstan. Their astonishing and fearless 'jigitovka' trick riding showcases beautifully the extraordinary relationship between man and horse and is a must see for all circus and equestrian fans.
Back by popular demand are Zippo's 21st Century 'Jigits' - on motorbikes not horses, Brazilian daredevils in the Globe of Death, the legendary Lucius Troupe. With their astonishing, break-neck speed loop-the-loop motorbike performance they are keeping the spirit of Jigitovka alive and well.
Plus hilarity from Alex the Fireman and new laugh-out-loud comic Emilion; juggler extraordinaire the record-breaking Nicolas Souren*; the amazing *Miss Kimberley on the swinging trapeze; real knife throwing; and other marvellous and amazing acrobats and artists – all presented by the one and only Norman Barrett MBE, the World's Greatest Ringmaster and his mischievous budgerigar pals.
ZIPPO'S CIRCUS performs at Central Park, East Ham, E6 6ET from Thursday 4 to Tuesday 9 May 2017.
