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.

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.

I'm not sure I'm sorry. However if you call the box office, who I found very helpful when booking, I'm sure they would advise of any discounts. Sorry I can't offer a definitive answer. Regards Anthony Matthews

You have a perfect view of the auditorium wherever you sit, only word of warning is to be aware of the smell of fuel after the motorbikes carry out their fantastic show. Definitely worth seeing
