Roll up, roll up

CLOWNS, acrobatics and death-defying leaps are the order of the week over in Renfrewshire — and no, we’re not talking sale shopping at Braehead shopping centre.

The Moscow State Circus arrives at Xscape next door this week, bringing with it a range of classic and contemporary circus acts which have toured the world before setting up tent 
in Glasgow’s back garden.

The internationally-renowned troupe presents Babushkin Sekret, a seasonal show featuring (to name a few) circus queen Yana Alievia on a revolving chandelier, the Whirlwind Robsovs, pole jugglers the Yakovlevs and clowns Pavlik and Klava.

Allow Russia’s crème de la crème to take you on a magical journey of stunts and slapstick from today up until January 20. The big top awaits...

n Performances at various times, running January 10-20 at Xscape, Braehead. 
Tickets £10-£29, 
available from 885
