Circus Extreme is coming to Lakeside this Easter

CIRCUS Extreme, one of the biggest and best circus tours in the world, has confirmed it is coming to Lakeside Shopping Centre this Easter.

The giant 1,000 capacity Big Top will take over part of car park 8 and open from 5 April until 24 April as it prepares to ‘blow people away’ with its death-defying, jaw-dropping and edge-of-your-seat performances and stunts.

Merging modern and contemporary styles with extreme stunts and classic clown escapades, audiences will be amazed by the jam-packed Circus Extreme production which features show-stopping performances with acts that include: the incredible Ayala Troupe from South America, who will be perform their award-winning High Wire presentation. This High Wire spectacular is quite simply one of a kind and nothing like it has ever been seen in the UK before.

Just back from its European tour, the EXTREME® FMX team will be bringing you its extreme stunts to the Big Top as pilots fly through the air displaying cliff-hanger stunts such as the superman and nac nac to name a few. Battling for air space, the resident riders are sure to get the adrenaline pumping as they defy gravity with incredible mid-air backflips

The EXTREME® stunt riding team will also be performing the Globe of Death, the most death-defying act ever demonstrated! This incredible stunt will put the performers under G-force similar to that of a fighter pilot. Watch as they loop vertically and horizontally all while encased in a mesh sphere.

There’s fun for the whole family with the world-famous Henry the Prince of Clowns, a legendary figure in the circus, will be keeping the audience amused throughout the show.

British legend, Laura Miller, will be showcasing her internationally-renowned aquatic aerial ring which unites the elements of fire, water and air. Witness the aerial hoop skills combining grace, beauty, visually stunning lights and music that will transport viewers into a sci-fi world.

On top of this there will be the Cloud Swing, Trapeze, Juggling and our troupe of dancers performing their acts all with unique twists.
