Celebrating our very own "Magnificent Showman" Zippos Circus founder Martin Burton’s 50 years entertaining families, the all-new 2024 production "Magnificent!" sees brand new routines from firm favourites within the Zippo core company whilst introducing new guest stars in a magnificent show that will delight and thrill family audiences.

The magnificent acrobat and comedy star PAULO DOS SANTOS will again be your host throughout the circus adventure and is joined by a fabulous cast of co-stars!

From South America, we welcome to Zippos the magnificent aerial maestro ALEX MICHAEL with his daring solo flying trapeze act that includes a death-defying upside-down walk in the very roof of the Big Top that's guaranteed to have audiences on the edge of their seats.

From Ukraine, we are delighted to include the magnificent mayhem of LA LOKA – an exceptional female clown making her first appearance on tour with Zippos. She will provide fun-filled moments for adults and children alike throughout the show. Watch out for her magnificent manipulation of hula-hoops; her comic approach not disguising an incredible talent!

Those magnificent, mighty MONGOLIAN WARRIORS are back by popular demand and this year present a brand-new sensational springboard act that sees the troupe hurtling through the air!

The Zippos magnificent MOTOR-BIKERS return with new surprises to the Globe of Thrills including for the first time PAULO DOS SANTOS joining in the adrenaline-filled routine! 

All this plus a whole host of renowned acrobats, tumblers, aerial performers, clowns and dancers combine in a modern theatrical circus production that can only be described as "Magnificent!"
