After the show's London premiere at the Southbank Centre in 2018, Circus 1903 will return to the same venue to be performed during the Christmas season, it has been announced. 

Celebrating the golden age of circus, the production features acrobats, contortionists, jugglers and high wire performers as they take to the air, performing death-defying stunts. As well as circus acts from around the world, two puppet elephants help bring the big top inspired show to life, with puppets created by Significant Object.

Returning to the Southbank Centre, Circus 1903 will feature acts from last year's production, as well as new acts for the 2019 show yet to be named. 

This year's production of Circus 1903 will begin at the Birmingham Hippodrome, with performances at the Lowry in Salford and Bord Gáis in Dublin before its final stop at the Southbank Centre from 19th December for three weeks.

Circus 1903 is at the Southbank Centre from 19th December to 5th January. 

Circus 1903 tickets will go on sale on 28th March.
