Zippos CircusZippos Circus comes to Blackheath in south east London this Easter presenting musical clowns the Rastellis, Guinness World Record-holding strongman Hercules and springboard and pole acrobats group the Tropicana Troupe of Cuban. Contortionist ODKA and equestrian Summer also join this well-loved travelling company which specialises in old

people of all ages will enjoy.

 

About Blackheath Common

Blackheath Common, to the south of Greenwich Park, is a World Heritage Site. It benefits from a high vantage point beside the Thames so you get some good views over the capital and from Point Hill you can see the three counties of Essex, Kent and Surrey laid out before you.
