Colourful clowns, international aerial performers and some of the world’s best daredevils have arrived in Busselton ready to wow audiences as part of The Great Moscow Circus.

It is the show’s fourth visit to the city and this time the cast and crew will present a brand new ‘extreme’ show.

The Great Moscow Circus promoter Mark Edgley said the show had the ‘wow factor’.

“This is guarantee to entertain all ages from two to 90-year-olds,” he said.

“The whole show is exciting, edge of your seat stuff.

“In some shows there is a 15 minute lull – we don’t have that, it is non-stop for more than two hours.”

The Great Moscow Circus big top was erected in Signal Park on Tuesday. The show features all the circus favourites such as ponies, high-wire acts and the Globe of Death.

Mr Edgley said every audience member walked away with a different favourite performance.

“I love just seeing all the happy faces at the end, everyone always leaves happy,” he said.

The Great Moscow Circus runs from August 30 to September 9.
