Hundreds of residents enjoyed getting up close to vintage vehicles when the ever-popular Fire Engine Rally rolled into Johnstone at the weekend.

Big crowds descended on Houstoun Square for a full afternoon of family fun as emergency vehicles old and new gathered in the town centre.

The Moscow State Circus INTU Breahead

The Moscow State Circus INTU Breahead.

The Moscow State Circus returns to the UK with its latest & greatest production to date.
Set in the mystical centre of Moscow’s cultural & artistic quarter ‘PARK GORKOGO’ (Gorky Park) is the perfect seasonal back drop for what is undoubtedly the greatest & most famous circus on earth.

Superstar Clowns Splendid Pavlik & Klava invite the audience to this wondrous & mysterious place, a place to romance, a place to stroll & take in Moscow at sunset & a place to see magnificent feats of human achievement, the like of which have never been witnessed in Great Britain before.

As our Loveable Buffoons reminisce about past times in one of the most famous cities on earth they are surrounded by a multitude of flying, back flipping, juggling & roller skating performers

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.

This years show features the
Award winning Flying Trapeze of Alievs White Birds,
The unbelievable roller-skating of the Veslovskis.
Three bathing beauties swept up on the revolving Ariel Ring and the unique Yakovlev Vertical Pole Jugglers.
From the most demanding feats of strength from the hand balancing of Vladislav Khostik to the gorgeous & gracious Ariel sail of Natalia Goncharova.
Add to this mix, the Kozak whip crackers & the revolving Russian Swing, catapulting its 10 strong troupe high into the apex of the chapitou at breakneck speed.

Don’t miss this amazing show, created especially for its first ever European tour.
