Do you live in the north? Fed up with everything always happening down south? Well, put your pint of stout down and call off the whippets - a phantasmagoria of wonderment is happening on your doorstep (if you happen to live right outside the Trafford Centre in Manchester) this weekend.
Cirque Surreal "boasts 25 world class artists in a remarkable fusion of ballet, physical strength and acrobatics with their latest show called Voyagers." You'll recognise quite a few of the performers from Sky One reality show Cirque de Celebrite - artists from Cirque Surreal trained a group of celebrities in circus skills. Visit www.cirquesurreal.co.uk, call 0871 702 9505, or just hang around outside the Trafford Centre, Manchester between April 10-27 and look out for people driving cars that are far too small for them and men with really unusually long legs.
