Record number of visitors for Wereldkerstcircus in Carré!

The 36th World Christmas Circus in Royal Theater Carré attracted a record number of visitors last year. With more than 66,000 tickets sold and an average occupancy of more than 99%, all 44 performances are sold out.

For years, Wereldkerstcircus has been the family activity for the Christmas holidays, where family and loved ones can enjoy the top of the international circus world together.

Henk van der Meijden, director of Stardust Circus International:

“We are happy that this tradition is still alive after 36 years and is now setting a new record! This is not only due to the high level of the world programme, but also because now more than ever many young people are discovering that top circus can be a party for everyone!”

Madeleine van der Zwaan, director Royal Theater Carré:

“We are incredibly happy to see that the public is once again enjoying the World Christmas Circus so massively. After two years of absence, it is nice to see that families and loved ones can spend time together again in the theater during the Christmas period."

The World Christmas Circus had no fewer than two world records this year, both performed by 21-year-old Kevin Richter, son of the well-known Richter circus family. He set the first record with the Hungarian Post, a horse act in which he leads 18 horses through the arena while standing on two horses. Kevin's second world record he set with his self-founded springboard group. The World Record, which, like the Hungarian Post, is officially set in the Guinness Book of Records includes 11 backflips through the air to a seven-meter high chair!

In December, the World Christmas Circus returns to Royal Theater Carré for its 37th edition.
