Roll up Roll up Roll up…
I have been passing Silvers Circus for years in Burnley and had always seen animals – at least I thought I had. I arrived to our show wondering if there would be elephants and lions. Hello its 2014!!! Luckily, I hadn’t mentioned anything to Master 7 & Miss 9. (PS. I’m not a fan of animals in cages so it was a double relief)
Just the word circus makes you feel happy. What a magnificent sight the tent is with kids running from all directions to get in.
TIP: next door is Burnley Park which have lovely gardens and a playground for before or after the show.
First, a friendly face at the box office, followed by a food & games area, all undercover. Of course we played a game, had fairy floss & a hot dog reasonable at only $4.00 each.
The show was… AWESOME!!!
Trying not to go into detail as to spoil it for you. The Ring Master, clowns, tightrope walker, juggler, hoola hooper AND the Ball of Death…AMAAAZING!!!
The whole experience was 2.5 hours long (including a 20 minute intermission) and is sure to thrill ages 4 – 104, but we also saw 3 year olds in the audience having a great time. It’s a loud action packed show – so if you have little ones who find loud noises scary (especially the Ball of Death with its revving motorbikes) you may want to take that into consideration.
The kids loved it and I did too. A happy, friendly, awe-inspiring place. Perfect school holiday entertainment.
TIP: we took the train to Burnley and walked, or you could take Tram 70 from Flinders / Elizabeth Street & get off at Stop 17.
*Editors note: if you are a fan of Santa’s Magical Kingdom then you will recognise a few of these acts – yes, Silvers helps out Santa with his Circus, but this Silvers Circus show is the full-length production.
