Organisers have promised an "unrivalled" mix of genuine circus talent from every corner of the globe - including a death-defying 'globe of death,' high wire walkers and jaw-dropping acrobats.

A spokesperson for the event said: "In an age where so much entertainment is unreal, made up of special effects, CGI and has a virtual reality, being pre-recorded, multi-tracked, digitally enhanced or in some other way electronically created - the sheer reality of a live show is a breath of fresh air and the feats and skills seen at Continental Circus Berlin are often so amazing that the circus-goer literally cannot believe their eyes.

"Beautiful aerialists, whirl wind jugglers, a laser man sending laser beams from his fingers and the sensational wheel of death, rotating into the roof of the Big Top. An amazing array of acts twisting an age-old tradition for a modern family audience."
