The Big Top returns with a brand new Foolhardy Circus Show this Easter – called Whoops! Twice daily at 12.00 and 2.00pm from Friday 30th March to Sunday 15th April. Tickets are £6.50 (Under 2’s free) and there’s no need to book. Just turn up but please don’t leave it too late in order to avoid disappointment.

Whoops! is set in a psychedelic circus with stunning hand-painted scenery, an original music and lighting show and is a celebration of 250 years of circus with a breath-taking finale to leave you on the edge of your seat. See the first-ever clown routine performed by Stone Age Man plus aerialist and rope dancer extraordinaire, Sue Fee, as well as juggling, hat manipulating and more and, of course, Cosmo - East Anglia’s favourite clown.
