- See the Moscow State Circus during a Lake District stay

January 30, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News reports people staying in Lake District accommodation can take a trip to the circus later this year.

The Sands Centre in Carlisle is set to welcome some of Russia's most talented performers when the Moscow State Circus arrives in town on Saturday March 5th 2011.

Due to present four shows over two days, the company is sure to amaze holidaymakers with its stunning array of acrobats, trapeze artists, jugglers, dancers and clowns.

The performances are scheduled to take place at 17:00 and 20:00 GMT on March 5th, while shows on the following day will begin at 14:00 and 17:00.

According to the Moscow State Circus website, members of the audience can expect to be astounded by the "split-second timing" of the acts, as well as their "disciplines honed from years of rehearsal and practice".

The company's new show Legenda was inspired by the dreams of one of Russia's most famous historical figures, Grigori Rasputin.

It has been described as "genuinely eye-popping" by the Evening Standard and "thrilling" by a critic from the Times.

Tickets for the Sands Centre performances, which will last approximately two hours, are priced between £13 and £25.50.

Holidaymakers heading to the Moscow State Circus can choose from a range of accommodation in the Lake District at, including the Sharrow Bay Hotel Lake District.
