From balancing ballerinas to music made with rubbish bins, London really does have it all when it comes to entertainment. It’s often difficult to know where to look or what to look for, so we’ve selected a handful of spectacular performances that are guaranteed to blow you away.
1. Moscow State Circus
The world famous circus is returning to the UK with its biggest and best performance yet. Their newest show is based on Russian folklore and tells the story of “the flower with seven colours” — where each of the petals represents a wish. It follows a magical journey to fulfilment and will feature some breathtaking acts, including a ballerina on a high wire and a 13-person springboard troupe. Buy your tickets here.
