Roll up, roll up! A death-defying circus has come to town.
The big top of Zippo’s Circus has arrived at Hove Lawns for a brand new, adrenalin-pumping show that runs until September 3.
Dubbed “Britain’s favourite circus”, Zippo returns to the city this year with a brand new show and production called Carnival.
Hosted by legendary ringmaster Norman Barrett, the fast-paced thriller features equestrian stunts, funny clowns Duo Delbosq, the Havana Troupe of flying Cuban acrobats and the Ukranian strong-man Hercules, who shows his impressive strength when a car drives over him.
The show also features the Globe of Death, a small steel globe packed with roaring motorcycles that zoom around the globe simultaneously while trying to avoid each other.
