|Zippos Circus is delighted to announce that Cirque Berserk!, the UK’s biggest and boldest theatre/circus spectacular, will be returning to the West End for a limited two-week engagement at London’s Peacock Theatre next February.
Combining beautiful contemporary circus artistry with hair-raising, death-defying stunts, all designed specially for staging in a proscenium arch theatre, the show will enthral thrill-seeking audiences.
Next year’s Cirque Berserk! will see 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 will be joined by a magnificent company of over 30 jugglers, acrobats, aerialists, dancers, drummers and daredevil stuntmen from all corners of the globe.
The production will play at the Peacock Theatre from 5 February to 17 February 2018, before embarking on a 40-week UK tour.

About the 250th anniversary of circus
The art of the circus was born in 1768, when showman and entrepreneur Philip Astley first drew out a circular arena on an abandoned patch of land in Waterloo and filled it with astonishing equestrian acrobatics. Cirque Berserk! is proud to be part of #Circus250, a UK-wide celebration of 250 years of the circus championed by Sir Peter Blake, who has designed the organisation’s logo.
