The historic Hippodrome Circus, Great Yarmouth, East Anglia’s mini Albert Hall, presents Jack & Peter Jay's all new Summer Spectacular Circus & Water Show from mid July to mid September.

The Summer Circus Spectacular promises to be another superb show with many fantastic international daring acts with the unique water spectacle, swimmers, aerialists and fireworks.

Hosted by East Anglia's very own comedy host Jack Jay & Johnny Mac and featuring Estelle Clifton's glamourous dancers and swimmers culminating in a 100,000 gallon water spectacle, the show promises to be bigger and more thrilling than ever before.

Visitors can enjoy the unique atmosphere of the Big Top in a fabulous 1903 landmark theatre; Britain's last surviving total circus building, one of only three still surviving in the world today.

A classic show for all the family, fun, thrills, excitement, hilarious side splitting laughs and spectacle unseen this side of Las Vegas.

The Hippodrome's show is a classic summer event featuring the best acts of their type available in the world today - a breathtaking, unique, thrilling smash hit in the Hippodrome's special spectacular atmosphere! Also new for this year Easter Circus and Halloween's Spooky family circus.

Unmissable entertainment for the whole family.
