This February, Manchester’s Event City welcomes Circus Extreme, a two-hour romp through some of the world’s finest daredevil stunts and gymnastics – and we have 10 pairs of tickets up for grabs. Branded ‘The World’s Most Extreme Circus’, Circus Extreme combines the classic circus fare – clowns, trapeze, dance – with hair-raising stunt-based theatrics. On the more traditional side of things there’s the now-legendary Henry the Prince of Clowns hosting the show throughout. There’s also Laserman, whose laser fingers turn Event City’s big top into a sci-fi wilderness. As for extremes, FMX (stunt-bike) riders with the G-force of a fighter pilot on the Globe of Death are sure to get the adrenaline pumping. There’s also the high-wire antics of Danguir Troupe, including the ‘double wheel of death’. Led by Mustafa Danger, the Troupe have never performed in the UK before, so this is definitely not one to miss. And let’s be honest – when are you next going to witness a contortionist shooting a bow and arrow with her feet? Event City is the country’s second largest venue outside London, and Circus Extreme will take place in the venue’s Circus Big Top, the biggest in the UK. The show runs for 17 nights from Friday 9 February. We have 10 pairs of tickets to give away. To be in with a chance of winning, simply enter your details below. Deadline for entry is Wednesday 7 February at midnight. Winners will be notified the next day.
Fri 9 Feb – Sun 25 Feb, EventCity, Phoenix Way, Manchester M17 8AS. Tel: 0203 3753970, times and prices vary, www.circusextreme.co.uk
