Sky high Superhero Spiderman will set pulses racing as he risks life and limb on the spine tingling Wheel of Death.

This petrifying Pendulum of Pandemonium will spin Spiderman high into the roof of the Big Top, where he will need nerves of steel as he runs, jumps and skips around the giant gyrating wheel.

Clowns Kakehole and Popol are returning fresh from their success of being voted the UK's Best Comedy Act in the National Circus Awards.

Now officially the UK's funniest funsters, they warn that this year they will be exploding into action with more outrageous antics than ever before.

Other highlights in an action packed two hour production will include Claudio the world's wackiest wire walker, springboarding acrobats from the Romanian State Circus, high flying aerial artistry from Angelo, and the Paulo Sisters with their high school hula hoops.
