Roll up, roll up.....the circus is coming to town!

Moscow State Circus hits Buxton Opera House this week as part of an extensive tour of England.

Marvel at the queen of Russian circus, Yana Alieva, on a revolving ariel chandelier, the high-flying bouncing bamboo bravado of The Perushkins and the vertical pole balancing of The Alikanov.

The show is in Buxton from January 20-22, with a performance at 7.30pm on the Friday, 2.30pm and 7.30pm on the Saturday and 2pm and 5pm on the Sunday.

If you can’t make those dates, you can catch the show at Derby Assembly Rooms from January 27-29 and at Mansfield Palace Theatre from February 12-14.
