Circus 1903


Watch the golden age of the circus come alive in Circus 1903. Featuring dangerous and jaw-dropping acts from all over the world, this show will leave you in awe and give you an adrenaline rush like no other!

Why Watch Circus 1903

Fresh off its run at the Paris Theatre in Las Vegas, Circus 1903 is all set for its European Premiere at the West End! A spectacular callback to the circuses of old, including Cique du Soleil, this is one theatrical performance that'll blow you away, not just for its sheer authenticity in transporting you back in time, but also for its excellent visual and technological effects.

The Story

Round off the holiday season with a fantastic viewing of Circus 1903. The show features acrobats, contortionists and jugglers showing off their prowess, while the trapeze artists having you watching their high wire performances with bated breath. The highlight of the show, however, are the life-size elephants that have been stunningly recreated by puppeteers from War Horse, bringing elephants back into the ring in an ingenious way!
