Continental Circus Berlin is currently wowing audiences in the big top in Southampton's Mayflower Park.

Motorcycle stunt riders, aerialists, clowns and all manner of other acts hail from all over the world, including Mexico, Brazil, Portugal, Ukraine, Russia and Tanzania.

The circus, which continues until Sunday, is housed in a climate controlled Covid safe big top.

The Continental Circus Berlin say this is their best show yet and there is something for audiences of all ages.

Special free NHS preview shows took place last week and The Circus of Horrors made a one off special appearance at the weekend.
