The Chinese State Circus comes to Cheltenham

Event ended

With a cast of Shaolin Warriors, flying acrobats, dancing lions and artists from the Peking Opera performing together for the first time outside of China, expect a full house when The Chinese State Circus arrives in Cheltenham for three-days of jaw-dropping performances in February.

Some of the world’s greatest acrobats and a selection of Olympic Gold and Silver medallists will join forces with the undisputed masters of martial arts, The Shaolin Warriors, for the action-packed two-hour show which is currently touring Europe – arriving at Cheltenham Racecourse’s The Centaur on Friday 1 until Sunday 3 February 2008.

Stretching the possibilities of human achievement, the performers have been hand-picked from seven different troupes in China to give Gloucestershire audiences a unique selection of ancient arts and modern day wonders.

Expect to see back-flipping acrobats, a dizzying succession of juggling gymnasts, candelabra-balancing contortionists, plate-spinning and Chinese pole balancers, as well as a sumptuous performance of the Lion Dance. It is no wonder the show has been described as ‘the most exhilarating circus ever seen’.
