Magical trip to the Hippodrome Circus
May 2021 • Couples
We were on holiday in Great Yarmouth and saw the flyers advertising the Pirate Show st the Hippodrome Circus. We took a chance and arrived at a very old building with plenty of history. The entrance to the venue was magical bringing back happy memories, the seating is comfortable but a little steep. The show was fantastic with lots of action, special affects and great sound. The large cast front and back of house have gone a great job and I would recommend venue and upcoming shows to anyone who likes live entertainment.

Hippodrome Circus

We come to Great Yarmouth for a few days from Essex and visited many places. We came to the hippodrome circus and we can honestly say it was amazing. Everything we watched was either really clever or really funny and my teenage children absolutely loved it! We are definitely going to come again when we visit Great Yarmouth next year.

Xmas Spectacular
Dec 2020
I went to the socially distanced Xmas Spectacular on Sunday 20 December. The Covid-19 precautions were well organised. The show was fantastic entertainment with superb circus acts and lots of fun. Thank you - the perfect tonic at the end of this difficult year.

Rare day out
Dec 2020 • Family
We had booked along time ago for a Christmas visit to the Circus and it was amazing.
We have not been here for many years but will return again in 2021.
The seating and views are very good and the lights are obviously far better than we last visited when our children were younger.
Seating was all social distanced when you went in and masks need to be worn.
Hand gel sanitizer was available at the door.
Popcorn,drinks and candy floss available and brought to you at your seat.
All the acts were very good and the show was superb.
We had three grandchildren with us aged 8, 6 and 5 and they absolutely loved it.
One dropped their popcorn and when we asked to buy another they said here is another you do not need to pay which was very good.
The compère and clown were excellent and ran the show very well.
And of course the stage floods with water and the floor sinks so the synchronised swimmers come on towards the end.
We would highly recommend and will return again next year.

Brilliant show and blown away by the performances!
Dec 2020 • Family
Excellent, dramatic and blown away from this years Christmas Spectacular! The organisation between each set without any breaks was brilliant.
We absolutely love Ben Langley and he had us all laughing as always. What a massive loss for the Theatre Royal in Norwich.
We were all left blown away from all the performances and credit must be given for each performer as some of the stuff they were doing were absolutely crazy!
Awesome afternoon out and highly recommend for everyone to go and enjoy!

Great Christmas Show
Dec 2020 • Friends
Went in our bubble to see the Christmas Spectacular last night. It was a great show and we felt totally safe throughout with careful attention having been paid to enable social distancing. Was great to see so many LIVE acts and so many people enjoying themselves. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole show from beginning to the water finale. Thank you Jack Jay and the whole team for taking us to a happy space after so many months of lockdown etc.
