ALL the fun of the circus was on show as a touch of Russia came to Northampton.

The many performers at the Moscow State Circus might have bought the cold weather with them but their impressive acts certainly warmed the audience up with many amazing performances.

Among the most impressive acts was Yana Alieva’s hula hoop act while suspended from a revolving ring 40 feet in the air which was a breathtaking start to the day.

There was lots of laughter from the tumbling skills of Vladimir Georgievskiy which were a constant delight to those both young and old.

However this was just two of the highlights of a wide range of material including acrobatics, death defying stunts, skating tricks and jesters which made your jaw drop in admiration for the wide array of talented performers.

There was plenty of entertainment on offer and this show will shake off the January blues.
