A beloved holiday tradition returns to Theater Carré when the World Christmas Circus celebrates its 36th edition this December! The World Christmas Circus (Wereldkerstcircus) is a festive tradition loved by Dutch and internationals alike, featuring a whole range of top-class acts from all over the world.

What makes the World Christmas Circus so special? The acts are hand-picked and all rank among the top performers as judged by the Golden Clown awards. The Golden Clown awards are given out annually during the International Circus Festival of Monte-Carlo and signify the top prize in the world of circus performance art. It's an honour to have so many of these fine artists in Amsterdam all at once!
Previous World Christmas Circus programmes have included Russian trapeze artists, Chinese unicyclists, French ventriloquists and Vietnamese circus acts. Many of the performers have won international acclaim and prizes, and the circus itself is globally respected.
Now in its 35th edition, the World Christmas Circus always makes for a special outing - whether you’re looking for an unusual night out with friends or a fun family evening.
