Chinese State Circus

MrsSRD and I went to see the Chinese State Circus last night at the Anvil, Basingstoke.
Circus isn't really my thing, and this wasn't the best example, some pretty good plate spinning, a reasonable contortionist who spoiled her act by having the stacked glasses she balanced stuck together and with lights in them rather than liquid, a lot of adequate tumbling, a rather second-rate sash acrobatic act and some very poor Shaolin monk martial arts stuff (our local shotokan karate club do as well). There was, however, lots of propaganda on the Olympics which, given the inability of the organisers of this tour to provide souvenir brochures (they will be ready in 10 days apparently) doesn't bode well.
If you are into circuses, go see the Russian State rather than this one.

I'm unlikely to go, Simon, Wiltshire is a little far away.

Circus is definitely not my thing. Thanks for the headsup though.
