From Wednesday, May 1 to Bank Holiday Monday, May 6, the Continental Circus Berlin will pitch its big top in Moor Park, as part of an exclusive UK tour.

Circus talent from every corner of the globe will be pulling off spectacular feats, including motorbike balancing, high-wire walking, a wheel of death and a laser man sending laser beams from his fingers.

A spokesman for the circus 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.”
