Establishment a bit run down. Needs refurbishing. Staff very hospitable and friendly. Circus show very good. Lasts about 2 hours. Clown car drives around Great Yarmouth advertising the venue.

Seeing pirates Live was fantastic my 2... More

Just watched the 4:30 showing of Pirates at the Hippodrome Yarmouth. Brilliantly fantastic, combining stage, water, good pirates and bad, trapeze, strong man and dance, comedy, oh no it's not, interactive entertainment for the young, old, and the not quite sure (parents like me). I love the Hippodrome, for it's retro cool style. Well done to the cast... My favourite,... More

Well performed A sensible length break not even a cue for the toilets Second half probably not as good but still exciting and thrilling Downside to the show: not really a lot of water activities and the guy up and down the...

Steeply staggered seating means even the smallest children can have a great view. Good comedy, acts and overall show. Looking forward to our next visit.

Went to the pirate show last night and it was absolutely incredible. The 3 lead acts were funny and entertaining and had my children in stitches. And then the story tied in with some various circus acts which were remarkable to watch. We were front row so really felt like we were on the stage with them! (And the scantily... More

Went to watch Pirates Live! at the Hippodrome for the second consecutive year and we were not disappointed. Just like last year the performance was highly entertaining, the production, lighting and music was at the levels you see from the live shows you see at DisneyWorld. It truly is one great evening out that is enjoyed by the whole family,... More
