What is the Circus Galassia show all about?

Relive the golden age of authentic circus with a captivating series of 2-hour matinee and evening shows staged in a traditional tented circus setting. The unique charm of this brand-new circus showcase is their intentional focus on human-only entertainment – no real animals feature in any of the acts. 

What’s more, the acrobats, jugglers, clowns and daredevils are all world-class talent from various parts of the globe that serve up breathtaking and death-defying stunts under the masterful eye of the ringmaster.

Think turn-of-the-century costumes, visually splendid staging, and super thrilling acts that will keep you on the edge of the seat. There’s the Globe of Steel with jaw-dropping motorcycle stunts, a space wheel that defies gravity, comical clowning from the harlequins, and much more on the cards.

While you’re there, round out the festive feels with candy floss and freshly popped popcorn, and wash down warm hotdogs with a range of slushies while you and the family are transported through the wonders of the circus.

If you’re looking for affordable things to do in Johannesburg with the entire family, you can’t go wrong with Circus Galassia.
