Zippos Circus

Shooters Hill Road, Lewisham, ,





The wait is over! Zippos Circus is back on the road with Carnival, a Big Top tour starring a diverse cast of thrilling artists from around the globe.

Carnival will be presented by Brazilian showman Paulo Dos Santos, who is a multi-talented comic, acrobat and martial artist – and stands at just over a metre tall. Charismatic Paulo has been with Zippos Circus for several years and is beloved by audiences young and old. This will be his first year as Ringmaster on the show, a testament to his popularity.

Paulo presents a fast-moving spectacle like no other as astonishing acrobats and aerialists, comics and daredevil motorcyclists come together from all corners of the world for this year’s colourful production.

Returning by popular demand will be the famous Globe of Speed with its team of daring motorcyclists performing high-velocity stunts.  Plus amazingly ‘elastic’ tumblers from Kenya; nail-biting knife-throwing from the Czech Republic; teenage hand-balancing skills and high jinx in their Flying Machine from the incredible Garcia family, plus high-adrenaline skills courtesy of the astonishing Wheel of Steel.

The show complies with all COVID-19 health and safety measures including social distancing seating within household/party ‘bubbles’ in the well ventilated big top.
