***SUMMER SPECTACULAR 1 August – 20th September 2020 We are planning a unique 2020 Summer Special, which will include all of your favourite elements from our award winning show.
Amazing acrobats, aerialists, daring stunts, dancers, swimmers and of course the world famous Water Spectacular.
All hosted by Jack Jay and the Hilarious Johnny Mac, its been a long start to the year, its time to finally say ‘I’m Enjoying Myself!’

We will of course we operating in a covid safe way and continuing to adhere to social distancing guidelines throughout the theatre.

There will be a limited capacity within the auditorium to allow for safe spacing of audience members, so you can rest assured that your experience can be as safe and enjoyable as possible.
Because of the limited seats available we are asking people to please book in advance to avoid disappointment, and due to the special measures you will have to book your seats over the phone with our Box office. You will not be able to book online for this particular show.

You can come along in larger family and safe bubble groups, that can then be sat together. Each booking will then be seated socially distanced within the auditorium.
This special performance will be shorter (approx 70 – 75 mins) in length with no intermission to reduce the traffic in crowded areas and make sure that you can remain as safe as possible. We will also be advising to arrive at The Hippodrome with extra time to allow extra time for entry and seating before performances.
Most importantly of all, we are confident that we can still deliver the fun, magic and spectacle that you all know and love from The Hippodrome and we hope to see you all very very soon
