Zippos Circus is back on the road in 2018 with a nationwide Big Top tour - "LEGACY" celebrating the 250th anniversary of the circus. Expect a spectacle like no other as extraordinary equestrians, astonishing acrobats, comic clowns and dashing daredevils join together in the ring to pay homage to Englishman and charismatic impresario, Philip Astley who invented the worldwide sensation that is circus in 1768. The electrifying cast will also introduce timeless comics Totti and Charlotte, Brazilian Capoeira comic acrobat Paulo Dos Santos, Daredevil Pablo performing atop a dazzling Space Rocket, Cuban acrobats the Hermansito Troupe, footjuggling from Romy, and Alex Michael who walks upside down 30 feet high. LEGACY will be presented by the world's most famous Ringmaster, Norman Barrett, MBE, who will also welcome back his colourful fun-loving budgies, a perennial hit amongst children and adults alike.
