Today CHILDCARE ADVENTURES went to the circus!! πŸŽͺπŸŽͺπŸŽͺπŸŽͺπŸŽͺ

Zippos Circus is in Endcliffe Park in Sheffield this week (August 10th -14th) and we managed to get tickets to today’s afternoon show. Zippos Circus is one of the UKs biggest and most popular travelling circuses and has been touring the country for 30 years!!!

So with four very excited little ones we arrived in Endcliffe Park at 3pm to witness the magic.


The tickets are great value considering the amazing show Zippo put on. The ticket prices depend on where you sit in the big top. Tickets range from Β£10.50 for an adult (14+) with a slightly restricted view up to Β£27.50 if you sit ringside. For the kids it varies from Β£9 up to Β£21.50. We sat ringside and let me tell you, it was FANTASTIC!!! If you can afford the more expensive tickets do it. We saw everything!

We took kids aged 10 months to 9 years old and they all loved every minute! Going to a circus can be quite a daunting experience if you’ve never been before but constant reassurance and always giving the kids the option to leave always makes for a successful trip.

(TOP TIP: Keep an eye out for the light up sticks, for the little ones whenever they lost a little interest in the circus the light up sticks kept them very entertained!)

It’s a really lovely family show, its colourful, funny, nostalgic and just a wonderful experience and a perfect opportunity for making memories.

If you live in Sheffield get yourself down to Endcliffe Park and see Zippo’s Circus before it goes… You won’t regret it!

As Mr.Zippo himself says…

You’re never too old,

you’re never too young,

And you’re never too cool to go to the circus!
