Zippo's Circus "JIGIT" Comes to Sheffield // Win one of five family tickets!

Do you remember your first circus show? There's something just so magical about the big top arriving into town and there's certainly nothing like getting the family together to see a show.... i'll never get bored of it! One of my favourite quotes from ringmaster Norman Barrett, MBE is "you're never too old, you're never too young and you're never too cool to go to the circus" and how true it is! We started taking our daughter to big top shows since she was a baby, passing our circus going tradition on to her. Just like her parents, she's mesmerised by the atmosphere, the costumes and the mind-blowing skills of circus performers.

When it comes to family friendly circus shows, you really can't get much better than Zippos Circus. Lucky for us Sheffield folk, Britain's favourite circus is returning once again this year to Endcliffe Park from the 10th - 14th August with their brand new show "Jigit!". 

This years show welcomes the thundering hooves of acrobatic Cossack riding into the UK circus ring for the first time in 30 years with the appearance of the Khadikov Jigit Riders from Kazakhstan. Their astonishing and fearless 'jigitovka' trick riding showcases beautifully the extraordinary relationship between man and horse. 

If that wasn't enough, you'll be dazzled by a feast of performers that include heart stopping knife throwing, an incredible African contortionist, hilarity from Alex the Fireman (who is incredible, trust me!) and the return of laugh-out-loud comic Emilion. Let's not forget that the show is led by the one and only Norman Barrett, MBE who is back with his mischievous but oh, so cute budgerigar pals!

Finally, if you're into your thrills then you certainly won't be let down the legendary Brazilian Lucius Troupe and their Globe of Death who return to present their astonishing break-neck loop-the-loop motorbike performance. I guarantee that it will have you on the edge of your seat!

Let me tell you, I am so super excited to see this years show. It sounds incredible! If you'd like to catch one of the performances in Sheffield then I am here today to announce that I have family tickets to give away on my blog for five lucky winners! 

These tickets are for 2 adults and 2 children and I have five lots of these available for any Sheffield performance of each winner's choice (subject to availability). The show runs from 10th - 14th August 2017 at Endcliffe Park, Ecclesall Road, S11 7AB.
