Have you ever wanted to attend The Blackpool Tower Circus Panto? We have and on Saturday we travelled to Blackpool to watch Aladdin, a show we really enjoyed. We attended the Aladdin pantomime on opening night and we had such a great time as a family. I’m excited to share our experience with you.
The Blackpool Tower Circus Panto
We love to visit Blackpool and especially enjoyed going to the Blackpool Tower. We visited the Blackpool Tower circus earlier this year and enjoyed the humour, stunts and acts. I wasn’t sure what to expect from a circus panto but it was not disappointing.
Blending a mixture of pantomime, dancing, singing and circus acts was a real treat.
This was quite different to any pantomime we have ever attended and we really enjoyed the story as well as watching the amazing acts.
From aerial artists to fire spinning and bike riding, there was something for everyone to enjoy. We watched some stunning circus performances including a great performance as Aladdin and Jasmine flew on a flying carpet across the famous Blackpool Tower Circus water.
Disabled Access at the Blackpool Tower Circus
Having disability and mobility issues always makes visiting a show or performance a little different.
The Blackpool tower circus has great disability access. It is easy to enter and leave and there are spots for those attending in wheelchairs.
I was physically well enough to walk on the day and luckily we were given seats which did not require climbing too many steps.
The show makes access available for all and that is really important in my eyes.
What Food Can You Buy at the Blackpool Circus?
The Blackpool circus has a selection of drinks and snacks which can be purchased at one of two stalls or from workers in the circus circle. There are a variety of cold and warm drinks for kids and adults.
The Blackpool Tower Circus offer sweet or toffee flavoured popcorn in bags. There is candy floss, chocolate, a variety of ice creams along with other options.
There is a £5 deal where you can choose one snack and one drink for £5 as well as individual prices and family snack deals.
Watching Aladdin at the Blackpool Circus
We really enjoyed the Aladdin Panto at the Blackpool Circus. I have to say I do love Mookie the clown. He is always so funny and really makes you laugh.
The show was really fun to watch as a family and my daughter had a fantastic time. My husband also really loved the show and couldn’t stop laughing.
There was a mixture of fun and more serious acts and I think the variety was a great balance. We enjoyed watching Aladdin and seeing a “different version” to that which we were used to.
I think that it was great how much the audience were involved and everyone appeared to be having a fantastic time.
The show is produced and directed by the legendary Endresz family and they really did showcase the very best of the Blackpool Tower Circus. It was fantastic. We think so.
The show is open from November 24th through to 20th January 2019. You can visit the Blackpool Tower Circus opening times to book your tickets.
