The world’s “most famous circus” brings its greatest production Gostinitsa - a show that promises spectacle and nerve-tingling, edge of your seat thrills - to Halifax later this month.

The Circus and its performers have been meticulously planning this event for two years.

Historically, Soviet circuses were different from their Western counterparts.

Their acts were more focused on Eastern European culture, and tended to hold more narrative and be more dance oriented than their bespangled, action-packed contemporaries.

This narrative style has recently become more popular with shows worldwide, the greatest examples being Cirque Dreams and Cirque Du Soleil.

Promoters are offering a special two full priced tickets for the price of one deal!

All you have to do is call the box office on 020 3375 3970 and quote ‘Juggler’.

Not valid with any other discount or against tickets already purchased.


We have got together with the promoters of The Moscow State Circus to offer our readers a brilliant competition when entrants can win one of 10 family tickets.

That’s a ticket for four people of any age to ANY performance while the circus is in town from May 23-28.

All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning is answer the following easy question.

Q: What do you call the construction a circus performance takes place beneath. Is it?

A) Big awning

B) Big top

C) Big caravan

Once you have your answer please type it into an email marked Moscow State Circus Competition and send it to by NOON, Monday, May 14.

Winners will be chosen in a random draw and notified immediately.

The judges decision will be final and usual Johnston Press competition rules apply.
