They’re among the south-east’s favourite continental visitors. They bring performing skills learned and polished over six generations of Big Top artistry. They represent a colourful cultural heritage which delights old and young alike. They’re bringing their new 2018 show to Collier Row!
They are the Santus family, bringing circus savoir-faire and polished style from their native France, and ready to greet old friends and make new ones as their 2018 circus tour begins.
Brothers Ernest and Roger Santus are members of some of France’s most illustrious circus families. Taking on almost every sort of skill and presentation, from hand-balancing and trapeze to unicycling, juggling, and acrobatics, they’ve performed across Europe and in Asia, and they’ve won top prizes at the prestigious Monte Carlo Circus Festival.
This is all-human traditional circus with a French flavour. The 2018 production includes top international artistes from Ethiopia, Mongolia, Hungary, Morocco, Brazil, Switzerland, and of course Britain and France. Performances run around two hours, and feature the revolving Space Wheel, trapeze, the ‘Chinese pole’, hula-hooping, contortionism, tight-wire, and gentle friendly clowning. Plus a unique motorcycle Globe of Death that splits open as the bikers race around inside – real thrills!
Santus Circus performs under a colourful and comfy heated Big Top. No price rise from past visits! Prices start from £9 (but look out for Discount Vouchers to get money off!) A Family Ticket for two adults and two children costs just £40. On Wednesdays and Thursdays, all seats are priced at just £7, first-come-first-served.
Santus Circus performs under the heated Big Top at Whalebone Lane Bootfair site, junction of Romford Rd. RM5 2DP (near Furze Farm) from Wednesday 10th to Tuesday 16th October.
