Hipp Hipp Hooray

After a long and anxious wait, the management of The Hippodrome Circus in Great Yarmouth have just announced that, following the government’s recent announcement that indoor performances with socially distanced audiences can begin again, that their venue will be the first theatre in the UK to re-open.

They are planning a unique 2020 Summer Special, which will include all your favourite elements from their award-winning show.  Amazing acrobats, aerialists, daring stunts, dancers, swimmers and of course the unique world-famous Water Spectacular, all hosted by Jack Jay and the Hilarious Johnny Mac.

The venue is Britain’s last surviving stand-alone circus building, the iconic 1903 Hippodrome and the only water circus in Europe featuring swimming. Dubbed by The Daily Mail as one of the 7 wonders of  The British Seaside.

They will of course we be operating in a Covid safe way and continue to adhere to social distancing guidelines throughout the theatre. There will be limited capacity within the auditorium to allow for safe spacing of audience members, ensuring that the audience’s experience can be as safe and enjoyable as possible.

Because of the limited seats available The Hippodrome are asking people to book in advance to avoid disappointment. Due to the special measures, you will have to book your seats over the phone with their Box Office.

You will not be able to book online for this show. You can attend in larger family and safe bubble groups, that can then be seated together. Each booking will then be seated socially distanced within the auditorium.

This special performance will be shorter (approx 70 – 75 mins) in length with no intermission to reduce the traffic in crowded areas and make sure that the audience can remain as safe as possible. The theatre’s management are also advising that you arrive at The Hippodrome early to allow extra time for entry and seating before performances. 

Most importantly of all, we are confident that we can still deliver the fun, magic and spectacle that you all know and love from The Hippodrome.
