“People often ask us how the show is organised, as well as where our wonderful horses live and how they’re trained and transported,” said circus founder and director Martin ‘Zippo’ Burton.

He added: “So we’re opening the doors and welcoming everyone in for a free look-round. Circus staff will be on hand to answer questions about every aspect.”

The event is free but book by emailing [email protected] or ask at the circus ticket office. To book tickets for the shows, visit
