International Circus Carnival

Blackpool Tower Circus presents a brand new circus especially for Showzam! with some of the world's most amazing, entertaining and unbelievable death-defying acts. Monte Carlo Circus Festival Award Winner for 2007 Elizabeth Axt will perform for you high up on the Washington Trapeze. This is no ordinary trapeze act, as Elizabeth displays amazing skills balancing upon the Trapeze, on her head!

Starring alongside Elizabeth for this outstanding international circus are: From China, the Spider Flyers, who will thrill from high above the Circus Ring upon the flying trapeze. The Gaucho cowboys will demonstrate skills honed on the grasslands of Argentina, whilst another South American artiste, Sapu from Brazil will perform a stunning contortion act which has been wowing crowds in Las Vegas. Acrobats the Gambats and Zulu will tumble around the ring with ease and Patrick Brumback's Los Alamos will perform heart-stopping knife throwing routines. Romanian hand balance act Badea will astound you with their discipline and skill before Blackpool Tower offers you the opportunity to learn the skills of the circus ring for yourself at workshops in the Circus Ring.

All your favourite characters from Blackpool Tower Circus will be on had to entertain and amuse: Mooky and Master Bubu will be up to their old tricks whilst Ringmaster Harvey Seager will be on hand to try to keep everyone under control! This very special Circus is produced by the multi award winning Laci Endresz Senior, and the soundtrack for the show is provided by The Tower Circus Band, under the direction of Stuart Reynolds.
