1980 is without question the year of the Robert Brothers Circus, now contracted to the BBC to present their traditional holiday time circus, this firmly puts the Robert Brothers in the number one spot in British Circus. The 1980 tour brings a major two hour show featuring acts from around the globe along with Robert Brothers own world famous elephants, lions, tigers and Boxing Kangaroo ‘ Skippy’ this will be the most expensive and spectacular sh­ow touring this year.

The Robert Bro­thers circus is 38 years old this year, their name and rep­utation have been carefully built up over the years by the brothers thems­elves, Tommy and Bobby Snr. Their motto is “give them a big opening, a big finish and a big welcome.”
