Just read this piece to the end to see how to enter.

This incredible band of performers are simply breathtaking and Dynasty projects an art form that has thrilled audiences for more than 2,000 years into a contemporary setting. One where low-tech everyday objects are transformed into hi-tech acrobatic equipment.

You’ll see hurtling porcelain jars, dynamically spinning plates, balancing on gigantic pyramids of tables and chairs framed by delicate strands of silk supporting cascading aerialists.

“Never has such excitement been generated in a theatre. The whole audience hangs breathless” wrote the Manchester Evening News.

The troupe is made up of world class Chinese acrobats, aerial artistes and jugglers who interact with the same super-human physical skills and dexterity as the masters of martial arts – the ancient and legendary Shaolin Warriors.

There’s none stop action from start to finish and all set to a soaring musical score accompanied by the rhythmic beat of Chinese percussion.

This is what has earned the Chinese State Circus the accolade “incomparable”.Book on 0844 4155228.
