Win a family ticket and meet the stars of theatre-circus spectacular

AFTER sell-out runs and tours in 2016 and 2017, Cirque Berserk!, the UK’s biggest theatre-circus spectacular, is coming to Darlington Hippodrome for the first time this summer, performing from Tuesday to Sunday, July 17 to 22.

And you could could win a free family ticket and go backstage to meet the stars.

Combining contemporary cirque-style artistry with adrenaline-fuelled stunt action, Zippo's Cirque Berserk! is a danger-filled spectacle which will amaze audiences of all ages.

The art of the circus was born in 1768 – 250 years ago – when showman and entrepreneur Philip Astley first marked out a circular arena on an open field in Lambeth, London, and filled it with astonishing equestrian acrobatics

Cirque Berserk! bring this treasured form of live entertainment bang up-to-date in a jaw-dropping spectacular created especially for theatre. This year’s show sees the return of its most famous – and most dangerous – act, the legendary ‘Globe of Death’, in which four motorcyclists defy gravity and risk life and limb traversing the inside of a spherical steel cage at speeds of up to 60 miles per hour.

They’re joined by a magnificent company of over 30 jugglers, acrobats, aerialists, dancers, drummers and daredevil stuntmen from all corners of the globe, plus brilliant and hilarious physical comedy performers, The Mustache Brothers.

Don’t miss out. We have Family Tickets (two adults and two children) to give away. The first prize-winner will be given an exclusive photo-opportunity with their group to stand beside the motorcycle Globe of Death before a performance and take pictures with the dare-devil riders on their stationary machines. And there are five more Family Tickets for runners-up.
