Overview

A range of astounding new acts will accompany old favourites, transporting audiences back to the wonders of the Golden Age of Circus. The most charming puppet elephants, Queenie and Peanut will return for 2021 alongside the magnificent Ringmaster Willy Whipsnade (award-winning magician David Williamson) who will preside over the whole extravaganza, delighting audiences young and old.

Joining the Circus 1903 family adventure this year is 'The Russian Bar' (performed by Ukraine trio Tymofii Chemko, Oleksii Balakhchy and Mykola Mykytchyn) which will entertain with exploits of equilibrium acrobatics in a delightful and delicate display unmatched on terra firma!

This new act will join the stomach-churning heights of ‘The Daring Desafios’ (a foursome of Brazilian teeterboard daredevils João Guilherme de Lima Siqueira, Luan de Souza Vieira, Leonardo Louzada de Freitas and Vinicius Vasconcelos da Silveira), the legendary balancing act Rola Bola by ‘The Sensational Sozonov’ (Russian artist Mikhail Sozonov), ‘The Cycling Cyclone’ (German artist Florian Blummel), unrivalled Ethiopian contortionist ‘The Elastic Dislocationist’ (Senayet Asefa Amare), the astonishing aerial artist duo ‘The Flying Fredonis’ (Daria Shelest and Vadym Pankevych), the Russian Cradle featuring breath-taking performances from ‘Les Incredibles’ (Olavo Rocha Muniz and Denise Torres de Souza), mind-bending juggler ‘The Great Gaston’ (Roberto Carlos), Dizzying Ethiopian duo ‘The Remarkable Risleys’ (Abiy Saleamlak Negash and Seife Desta Buser) will bring their Icarian Games act and finally Russian Rolling Ball Hula Hoopist ‘Mademoiselle Natalia’ (Natalia Leontieva).

The Wheel of Death will return for 2021. This ginormous rotating apparatus will see Colombian trio Carlos Mayorga Macias, Mauricio Venegas Torres and Andres Felipe Daza Venegas carry out eye-popping acrobatic skills.
