The Circus is back in town – New 2016 Show for The Isle of Sheppey
They’re the eighth generation of their family to excel in the circus arts. Each year, a new all-human production of their circus takes the road to entertain the people of the south-east. With their own families, the Santus brothers are proud to present their traditional-style show in Britain. It’s become a firm favourite with audiences, and comes to Sheerness from 3rd to 10th August with a brand-new 2016 show – details below.
Ernest and Roger Santus are members of some of France’s most illustrious circus families. Taking on almost every sort of skill and presentation, from hand-balancing and trapeze to unicycling, juggling, and acrobatics, they’ve performed across Europe and in Asia, and they’ve won top prizes at the prestigious Monte Carlo Circus Festival.
This is traditional circus with a French flavour. The 2016 production is titled ‘Legends’. It includes top international artistes from Brazil, Spain, Mongolia, Romania, Morocco, and of course Britain and France. Performances run around two hours, and feature rope-walking, juggling, trapeze, aerial straps, the ‘Chinese pole’, hula-hooping, contortionism, chair-balancing, and gentle friendly clowning, as well as the nerve-tingling thrills of the Globe of Death – three motorcyclists looping the loop inside a tiny steel sphere!
Santus Circus performs under a colourful and comfy heated Big Top. Prices start from £9 (but look out for Discount Vouchers to get money off!) A Family Ticket for two adults and two children costs just £40. Every Wednesday, all seats are priced at just £7, first-come-first-served.
Santus Circus performs under the Big Top at Barton’s Point Coastal Park, SHEERNESS ME12 2BX from Wednesday 3rd to Wednesday 10th August.

We sent Pete and Doug to go behind the scenes at the circus, and found out that Pete is scared of clowns and afraid of heights! Listen to them meet some of the performers and hear Doug brave the Globe of Death!
