A circus for the 1990s, a circus for the Xmas Moon. No animals, just the finest circus performers from Britain and abroad, swinging upside-down and inside-out above your ice creams, exploding out of a line of cars clogged and fogged up in the London traffic, enough to thrill the Xmas stockings off your feet!

A club of dreams, of song and dance and light and smoke, a magical world of twelve foot giants and tromboning trapezists. Live music, live colour, live action, live wire. Absolutely the craziest, most exhilarating show you will see this winter. What’s better than pantomime? This is!
