Chinese State Circus is bringing its new production, Dynasty, to Chantry Park from Thursday, April 4 to Sunday, April 9 in a heated big top venue.

It will see performers hurtling porcelain jars, spinning plates and balancing on gigantic pyramids of tables and chairs.

There will also be daring martial arts by the Shaolin Warriors.

The history of the Chinese State Circus spans 25 years when it was conceived by creative director Phillip Gandey.

Mr Gandey said: “In our latest production we have returned to the pure and honest perfection in acrobatics upon which our reputation is based.

“We have the world class artistes capable of performing the excellence required.”
