CIRCUS 1903 –The Golden Age of Circus

Step right up! For 10 days only until January 14! In a world premiere event, the producers of the biggest selling magic show in the world (The Illusionists) have teamed up with the award winning puppeteers of War Horse to present a thrilling turn of the century circus spectacular with all the thrill and daredevil entertainment one would expect from the circus, with an exciting new twist.

The World Loves Melbourne was invited along to experience the magic of Circus 1903. We found the show to be a stunning crowd pleaser, including for families with the kids raving! It was like you were in the early 1900s - loads of fun!
