Roll up! Roll up! The Moscow State Circus is in town.
Paul Archer, tour director, said: “We always take a brand new show to every town and city we visit.
“The perception in the UK is that circus’ are for kids but this is the highest quality circus you will find anywhere in the UK.
“There really is something for everybody here. The training involved sets it apart from other shows.
“A whole generation has missed out on going to the circus but when people come along they really enjoy it.”
The 4th Rastrick Brownies were treated to a special session at the circus where they learned various tricks including juggling and acrobatics.
Eight-year-old Louise Curnick said: “It has been good learning about the circus skills and how to do the tricks,”
