Roll up, roll up for the circus on ice!

And the ringmaster becomes a rinkmaster when the circus on ice has its only Scottish performances that run until January 18.

The show features trapeze artists, contortionists, acrobats, clowns, comedy acts, magicians and a troupe of dazzling ice dancers performing on the rink in a brand new state of the art and heated luxury theatre Big Top.

Operations manager with Soar at intu Braehead, formerly known as Xscape, Ian Anderson said: “This is a spectacular show that’s not been presented on this scale in the UK for 30 years.

“Continental Circus Berlin On Ice combines amazing feats of ice artistry with fabulous traditional circus skills and comedy.

“We’ve even got a daredevil whose wife fires a bolt from a crossbow to knock an apple from her husband’s head. All I can say is I hope she doesn’t slip on the ice when she fires the crossbow!”

As the park changed in accordance with the mood of the new century, it’s traditions were the basis of the new concept of Park Gorkogo, these changes are reflected in the new show, as like a pendulum, it swings from the earth to the sky in incredible breath-taking succession.
