Few things beat a day at the circus. And, just in time for half term, Circus Berlin are coming to EventCity for two weeks in February, with a specially-crafted new performance. Housed in the UK’s largest big top, the showcase includes talent from every corner of the globe. The African Danguir Troupe take on the high wire while Moscow State Circus’ The Rubtsovs display fast track acrobatics and aerial gymnastics galore. An extreme stunt riding team will brave the Globe of Death – high G-force vertical and horizontal loops in a giant mesh sphere  – while other performers, many of which have never been seen in the UK before, include an aerial chandelier act, a Vegas-style quick change artist and dancers.

Fri 8 – Sun 24 Feb, EventCity, Phoenix Way, Off Barton Dock Road, Manchester, M41 7TB, Tel: 0203 375 3970, times vary, £8 – £36, www.eventcity.co.uk
