Circus of Horrors comes to London's West End and beyond....

18 years ago when the Circus of Horrors made its debut at the Glastonbury festival nobody believed it would last 18 weeks let alone 18 years. Now almost 2 decades later it has finally come of age & becomes the first circus to appear in a resident season in a West End Theatre for the last 100 years.

The last couple of years has seen the profile of The Circus of Horrors jump tremendously after storming into the finals of Britain's Got Talent & then appearing on various subsequent TV shows, The X Factor, The Slammer, Daybreak, Fairground Attractions, Who wants to be a Millionaire, Body Shockers & Fake Reaction. Combined with the release of the Dr Haze autobiography  Mud Blood & Glitter this has certainly made it an exciting time for The Circus of Horrors. The media profile is continuing with large editorials & images in almost every nation newspaper & a further appearance on This Morning & more pending TV shows including a Discovery Channel special.
The current tour starting in October and running to the end of March will see another giant leap for the show when it begin’s a series of dates at The Lyric theatre in London's West End,  a fitting way to celebrate 18 bloody years of Shock n’ Roll.
In addition to the London dates The Circus of Horrors will be engaging in a huge British tour, taking in around 100 venue’s in pretty well all of the UK’s major cities from Inverness to Truro.
The West End shows are particularly significant, taking the extreme to the mainstream without compromise & proof of how far the show has come. The latest incarnation ‘London after Midnight’ is inspired by the film of the same name. Set in plague ridden London & climaxing with the Great Fire of 1666.

The storey twists and turns with grisly murders and sensational shocks – all interwoven with some of the greatest and most bizarre circus acts on earth, sword swallowers, knife throwers, daredevil balancing acts, astounding aerialists, a dwarf strong man, hairculian hair hanging beauty, sinister sisters, gyrating & fire limboing acrobats, dislocating contortionist  & illusions designed by Simon Drake (Secret Cabaret) & much more.
Performed by an almighty cast with a forked tongue firmly in each cheek and the devil driver rock n’ roll of Dr Haze & The Interceptors from Hell.
