The Globe of Death.

Now, the producers of the Moscow State Circus are treating Northampton to a brand new show specifically designed for their exclusive UK tour.

A spokesperson for Circus Extreme, who is behind the exciting new show, said: "In an age where so much entertainment is unreal, made up of special effects, CGI and has a virtual reality, being pre-recorded, multi-tracked, digitally enhanced or in some other way electronically created - the sheer reality of a live show is a breath of fresh air and the feats and skills seen at Continental Circus Berlin are often so amazing that the Circus-goer literally cannot believe their eyes."

Heart-stopping acts include aerialist’s, quick change artistes, high wire walkers, the rotating wheel of destiny, motorbike balancers, Hula Hoop queens, whirlwind acrobats and the death defying Globe of Death with riders traveling a G force speeds inside a mesh dome.

Audiences will be guided through each performance by clowns Angelo and Eddie.

The spokesperson continued: "Housed in a climate controlled, Covid-secure, socially distanced Theatre style big top, it is sure to impress, this magical production is brimming with an international cast of breathtaking artistes featuring an unrivalled mix of genuine circus talent from every corner of the globe.

"This Circus is the finest show to come to town under The Continental Circus Berlin banner and this famous name has always been your guarantee of a great show, a rare treat, and great fun and with something for all ages."

NHS and care workers are asked to call the box-office manager on 074 9477 4009 to reserve their seats. They will need to bring proof of employment when collecting their tickets and and the offer is caped at the first 300 seats as the venue capacity has been reduced to allow for social distancing.
