Imagine a brilliant rock show combined with amazing, bizarre & dare devil Circus acts, a stellar light show and all performed with a forked tongue firmly in each cheek. If Quentin Tarantino had directed Cirque Du Soleil you would be half way there.
The Circus of Horrors is back with a bang & a brand new show, Psycho Asylum which includes an amazing amalgamation of acts, driven by a rock n roll sound scape, a show that will have you sat on the edge of your seat when not falling off it with laughter.
The almighty cast that stormed into the finals of Britain’s Got Talent is now a West End & World Wide Hit will take you on a roller coaster ride of sword swallowers, cross bow & knife throwing ultra-vixens, flaming hula hooping divas, hair hangers, strong men, whirlwind acrobats, twisted contortionists, sinister aerialists, the darkest of Magic & lots, lots more.
It is a circus like no other and a show you simply can’t afford to miss.
Whether you’re a metal head or theatre goer The Circus of Horrors has something for everyone, listed number 2, just behind Guns n Roses and ahead of Marilyn Manson & Ozzy Osbourne at this year’s Download Festival & previously winner of the UKs top contemporary Circus – is now celebrating an astounding 23 years on the road with its latest incarnation Psycho Asylum.
