America and Russia are not exactly best pals right now. But this week, the two superpowers are combining under the circus big top.

The Moscow State Circus has rolled into the Royal Norfolk Showground for Gostinitsa: Hotel of Curiosities, which unites the circus with the golden age of Hollywood, and promises to be a spectacle for all the family.

Clowns the Chervotkins will guide audiences through the Hotel, featuring performances on Europe's only double Russian swings and three acrobats climbing and spinning to the top of two 10m poles balanced on the single shoulder of one man.

There will also be unicycling, foot juggling, trapeze, high wire and the Gostinitsa bellboys performing a skipping act with a twist apparently not to be missed.

The show is twice a day until Sunday April 22.
