THE circus comes to Ilfracombe next month – all the way from China.

As part of a 37-date theatre tour, the Chinese State Circus will touch down at the Landmark Theatre for a brand new four-show extravaganza on February 5 and 6.

The extravaganza showcases gravity-defying acrobatics and ballet, plate spinning and parasol juggling, as well as an explosive and highly-choreographed display of human juggling.

Suitable for an audience of all ages, with evocative sets, soaring musical score and extravagant new costumes, the show is sure to keep the entire family entertained long after the final curtain falls. For tickets, call (01271) 342 342.
