The trad circus spectacular kicks off its tour with stints in Blackheath and Brockwell Park
Celebrating 250 years since impresario Philip Astley (arguably) invented circus, 'Legacy' is Zippos Circus's waltz through the genre's long and glittering history. Its tour kicks off on Blackheath, not far from where Astley's first circus dazzled Georgian punters. Roll up for a line-up of trad treats including daring horse troupe The Khadikov Riders, clowning couple Totti and Charlotte, and daredevil tightrope walker Pablo - all presented by veteran ringmaster Norman Barrett, MBE, and his colourful flock of performing budgies.
