21st Anniversary tour – WELCOME TO THE CARNEVIL
The show that stormed into the finals of Britain's Got Talent and now a West End smash is back to mark its 21st Anniversary in spectacular style.
The last few of years has seen the profile of The Circus of Horrors jump tremendously after rampaging into the finals of Britain's Got Talent and to this date it is still the only circus ever to reach the finals.
Its appearances on various subsequent TV shows have turned what set out as a cult show into a household name – taking the extreme to the mainstream.
The latest incarnation ‘Welcome to the Carnevil’ is set in Victorian London in 1899 when Jack the Ripper was still at large and it was the age of the Freakshow. A young girl dreamt of running away to join the circus only to see her dream become a nightmare in a decrepit and corpse ridden Carnevil, plagued by a swamp of Killer Klowns, Sword Swallowers, Demon Dwarfs, Death Defying Aerialists, A Guiness World Record holding Hairculian Diva swinging solely from her hair, back flipping and fire limboing acrobats and lots more. It is a show ruled by the undead, climaxing in an awesome flaming apocalypse.
The story twists and turns with grisly murders and sensational shocks – all interwoven with some of the greatest and most bizarre circus acts on earth, performed by an almighty cast with a forked tongue firmly in each cheek and the devil driven rock n’ roll of Dr Haze & The Interceptors from Hell.
