After a wildly successful run last year, producers of Circus 1903 have confirmed that the hit show will return to London this year.
Circus 1903 will take over the Royal Festival Hall at London’s Southbank Centre from Thursday 19 December 2019 – Sunday 5 January 2020.

Set at the turn of the century, the show features jaw-dropping stunts from some of the world’s best performers to bring to life the wonders of the golden age of circus.
Acrobats, trapeze artists, contortionists, jugglers and more come together to tell a tale that is a whole lot of fun for the whole family.
The show is famous for its life-sized elephants, created by the puppeteers from the stage production of War Horse.
Fan favourite elephants Peanut and Queenie, alongside ringmaster David Williamson, will be returning to the London stage for the show later this year.
A worldwide phenomenon, Circus 1903 completed a five-month Las Vegas residency, and the cast have performed on the television shows The Late Late Show with James Corden and America’s Got Talent.
Full cast details are still to be announced.
Circus 1903 will run for a limited time only between Thursday 19 December 2019 – Sunday 5 January 2020.
