A SHOW and club night like no other, merging circus skills, acrobatics and dance performances with light shows and special effects, is coming to Manchester.

Bowlers Exhibition Centre will be transformed into a futuristic spectacle when The Carnival Of Light opens on Saturday, December 8, from 10pm to 3am.

During the night, described as a 'sensory overload' there will also be fire performances, ultra-violet displays, indoor fireworks and confetti cannons while parades, including a Chinese dragon, will move through the venue.

Guests are encouraged to come in light-inspired outfits and professional face and body painters are on hand to ensure that everyone becomes a part of the psychedelic show to a soundtrack of drum and bass, deep house, trance and techno.

Tickets are on sale from £17.50. Visit thecarnivaloflight.co.uk.
