Gandeys Circus returns to Aintree with The Greatest Show Tour
5 years ago
Fans of The Greatest Showman need to be heading to Aintree this February half term as Gandeys Circus returns with their Big Top show.
Gandeys is the UK’s biggest Big Top show and will be coming to Liverpool direct from its appearance on Hong Kong’s waterfront.
THE GREATEST SHOW tour opens in the fully-heated 1,500-seat Big Top at Aintree Racecourse from Friday 15th February until Sunday 3rd March 2019.
Over 30 international circus artistes – from Cuba, Kenya, Colombia, Mexico, Ghana and the UK – will have you Come Alive, as they assemble in a spectacular production proudly presented by HAYLEY and MARISKA, the fourth generation of the famous GANDEY family’s circus dynasty.
“Performing high in the roof of the Big Top, The Gerlings walk, dance, and ride a bike on a single silver thread. The fearless Duo Garcia perform acrobatics on a soaring rocket. A ‘rubber man’ contorts into shapes you didn’t realise were possible. Our courageous Cubans launch themselves off the springboard. Jacqui and Brandon delight with a romantic aerial ballet on the silks, and Gina displays mystical artistry and poise on the low wire. Acrobats balance, tumble and bounce on a Russian bar… there’s electrifying excitement from the African Warriors… and bellyfuls of laughter as Europe’s favourite clown Chico Rico returns! Top it all off with adrenaline-fuelled antics in the space wheel, and motorbikes in the ‘globe of death’. With production numbers inspired by the West End, featuring over 200 lavish costumes in our new fully-heated Italian big top theatre of A Million Dreams, this truly is The Greatest Show!”
