For its 2017 tour Zippos Circus, presents a brand new production Jigit! – celebrating the show’s sensational new equestrian and fearless acrobatic marvels.
Zippos Circus welcomes the thundering hooves of acrobatic Cossacks riding into the UK circus ring for the first time in 30 years, with the appearance of the Khadikov Jigit Riders from Kazakhstan.
Their astonishing and fearless ‘jigitovka’ trick riding showcases beautifully the extraordinary relationship between man and horse and is a must see for all circus and equestrian fans.
Back by popular demand are Zippos’ 21st Century ‘Jigits’ - on motorbikes not horses - the Brazilian daredevils in the Globe of Death – the legendary Lucius Troupe.
With their astonishing, break-neck speed loop-the-loop motorbike performance they are keeping the spirit of Jigitovka alive and well.
Promoters also promise hilarity from Alex the Fireman and new laugh-out-loud comic Emilion, juggler extraordinaire the record-breaking Nicolas Souren, the amazing Miss Kimberley on the swinging trapeze, real knife throwing and other marvellous and amazing acrobats and artists – all presented by the one and only Norman Barrett, MBE, the world’s greatest Ringmaster and his mischievous Budgerigar pals.
