Circus of Horrors

Circus of Horrors


The now annual 100 venue UK theatre tour is expanded throughout the World including Japan, Germany, Chile, Uruguay, Holland, Belgium, Argentina, France, Italy, Ireland, Finland, Hong Kong and Moscow where it became the 1st UK Circus ever to perform in Russia, plus an astounding 10 nights in London's O2.

It’s not the 1st time however that The Circus of Horrors has created history, it became the only circus ever to reach the finals of Britain’s Got Talent and the 1st Circus to perform in London's West End for over 100 years.

The Circus of Horrors started its gruesome beginnings at the 1995 Glastonbury Festival and became an instant hit, touring all over the world as well as festival appearances with Alice Cooper, Eminem, Motley Crue, Oasis, Iron Maiden, The Manic St Preachers, Foo Fighters and many more.

‘You have to go and see this if, one day something will go wrong and you will be able to say I was there’ Graham Norton.
