The greatest show on earth

HOW better to ease you and the kids into the new year than a trip to the circus?

And not just any old collection of animals, clowns and aerial performers: this is the Moscow State Circus — world renowned and in all its glory.

This year’s show is called Park Gorkogo — that’s Gorky Park to you and me — and is being billed as the best yet.

See the award-winning flying trapeze of Alievs White Birds. Watch the Veslovskis and their fascinating roller skating skills.

If that’s not enough, how about the unique Yakovlev Vertical Pole Jugglers?

The Moscow State Circus is at Braehead from tonight and runs until January 19. Tickets £10 and £32.
