The world’s largest socially-distanced big top circus tent is coming to Manchester, showcasing death-defying stunts that are guaranteed to leave petrol-heads, theatre-lovers and thrill-seekers firmly on the edge of their seats.
Running from Friday 2 until Sunday 18 July, with multiple show times scheduled for each day, Circus Extreme invites viewers into a huge red-top circus tent at The Trafford Centre for two-hours of eye-popping entertainment. Five years in the making, this one-of-a-kind performance will feature an array of stunts that you won’t find anywhere else in the world.
Ayala Troupe will be up on the high-wire to deliver aerial routines that have never been seen before on our shores; Columbian duo Vanegas will be making their UK debut and dazzling attendees with their unbelievable high-jumps and backflips, and the world-famous Henry the Prince of Clowns will be entertaining kids (and big kids) throughout proceedings with his legendary clowning antics.
For adrenaline junkies, the EXTREME® freestyle motocross team will be on-hand to perform some how-did-they-do-that manoeuvres – including the Globe of Death, which sees their team endure fighter-pilot levels of G-force to loop vertically and horizontally in a giant mesh sphere.
Meanwhile, British legend Laura Miller will treat audiences to her world-renowned aquatic act which splices elements of air, fire and water with stunning lighting and music to evoke an eerie sci-fi world. The unmissable aerial duo Polischuk and fire juggler Tony Garcia will also be on-hand throughout, with the overall Circus Extreme performance guaranteed to leave visitors truly amazed.
Fri 2 Jul - Sun 18 Jul, Various start times, The Trafford Centre, Peel 7 Car Park (John Lewis Side), Manchester M17 8AA, Tel: 0203 375 3970
