Very enjoyable afternoon performance. Well organised, courageous and skilful acrobatic displays. The clown seemed to delight the small children in the audience. Altogether a great spectacle.

What more can I say! Thank you for sharing such a great circus show with us all here at Manchester. From start to finish, so many different acts for all the family to enjoy. I would not care to single out any one single act as they were all equally as good as each other. So my vote has to... More

Went with my family, daughter 5 yrs old. First part is a bit long. Light, music and show is nice for the children. For adults is a bit boring. My daughter loved it :) . In the buffet: ice cream is terrible, coffee is terrible, pop corn is so-so. Don't buy nothing there except mineral water, hehehe))) No parking! Better... More

The circus is a cross between extrodinary airobatics and animals. 3 hours of solid entertainment with a short 15 minutes break. The lions I was not so keen... More

I really love the Russian circus as the artistes are highly professional and entertaining. I believe that everyone who attends the show loves it, especially the children. The lion was quite reluctant to jump from one metal wheel to the other and required some pushing from its trainer. The only ones not enjoying the show are the performing animals, I... More
