Step right up, Evening Times readers, because The Greatest Show on Earth has finally rolled into Glasgow to set up home for the next (almost) two weeks.

For its 2017 tour, family favourite Zippos Circus is bringing a brand new production which will celebrate all things equestrian and fearless acrobatic marvels.

The circus has, this year, welcomed the thundering hooves of acrobatic Cossacks riding into the UK circus ring for the first time in 30 years, with the appearance of the Khadikov jigit riders all the way from Kazakhstan.

Their astonishing and fearless trick-riding showcases the extraordinary relationship between man and horse, a must-see for both circus and equestrian fans.

Brazilian motorbike daredevils will also step into a ‘globe of death’ where breakneck speed, loop-the-loop motorbike performances will keep the spirit of jigitovka - riding five motorbikes indie the globe - alive.

Organisers have said it’s the first time such a stunt will be performed on UK soil.

Comedians, a juggler extraordinaire, a swinging trapeze, and real-life knife-thrower will take to the ring along with other acrobats and artists.

The show will be presented by Norman Barrett MBE, one of the world’s top ringmasters.

Zippos Circus will be in Queen’s Park from June 13 to 18 before moving into Victoria Park from 20 to 25.

After touring much of Scotland, the show will descend on Bellahouston Park from August 1 to 7.

Tickets for the two-hour show start from £9 for adults (15 years and over) and £7.50 for children.

Seats for the first night preview show are available for £7.50, and young audience members (under two) go free if they don’t occupy a seat.

Advance booking is recommended here.
