You may have noticed that here at Chickens and Bees we are quite partial to a night out at the circus. Well, we are VERY excited about this circus! It has elephants! Well, kind of. It has puppet elephants! So all of the fun, without any of the cruelty that comes from having animals in a circus. And the best bit? We've got tickets to give away to the Melbourne show! Read on to find out how you can win!

In a world premiere event, the producers of the biggest selling magic show in the world (The Illusionists) have teamed up with the award winning puppeteers of War Horse to present a thrilling turn of the century circus spectacular with all the thrill and daredevil entertainment one would expect from the circus, with an exciting new twist.

of the globe, from strong men to contortionists, acrobats to musicians, knife throwers, high wire and much more, CIRCUS 1903 –The Golden Age of Circus, promises to take

Thanks to sensational puppetry on a never seen before scale, CIRCUS 1903 –The Golden
Age of Circus puts Elephants back in the ring by introducing the largest ever performing
African elephant and her baby to international stages.

advances in design and expression - the giant mother and her calf will feature throughout
the show as the mother teachers her baby to perform in the circus.
