A New Circus Starring An International Cast Of Breathtaking Artists Is Coming To A Venue Near Manchester

The creators of the Moscow State Circus are bringing a new show with exciting acts from across the world to Preston

In an age where so much entertainment is ‘unreal’, made using special effects and CGI, the sheer reality of a live show is a breath of fresh air.

Continental Circus Berlin promises an amalgamation of brilliant circus acts and music, with an international cast of breathtaking artists performing feats and skills so daring that circus-goers will be unable to believe their eyes.

Based in a theatre-style big top in Preston’s Moor Park, the spectacular will run from May 1 – 6 and will feature an unrivalled mix of genuine circus talent, scoured from every corner of the earth.

Acts will include the Danguir Troupe from Africa, who will perform a high wire and wheel of death stunt. And direct from the Moscow State Circus, the Roubstov Troupe will fly through the air performing an incredible selection of tricks, from an incredible display of tumbling and somersaults to an exciting aerial gymnastic display.

The star of the show will be the Globe of Death, which will be performed by the Extreme® stunt riding team. Described as ‘the most death-defying act ever completed’, the trick will see the group loop vertically and horizontally all while encased in a mesh sphere, during which they will experience G-force similar to that of a fighter pilot.

And Edy the Clown, a legendary figure in the circus industry, will be keeping the audience amused throughout the show.

The spectacular will also feature a beautiful aerial chandelier act, a Vegas-style quick change princess and a troupe of dancers. As well as an amazing array of acts all with unique twists, many of which have never been seen in the UK before.
