The Circus of Horrors storms into London's West End with what is undoubtedly its greatest show to date.
The show that smashed into the finals of BRITAINS GOT TALENT is back with an awe-inspiring rock 'n' roller coaster of a show that flies like a bat out of hell to celebrate an astounding 18 years of shock 'n' roll.
Ever since it's conception at the 1995 Glastonbury Festival the show has toured the World achieving cult status and dragging circus screaming and shouting into the 21st century and beyond.
The new sensation is inspired by the legendary and sinister lost movie 'London after Midnight' and is packed with new shocks that will take you on a whirlwind journey though a plague ridden London in 1665 and culminating during the great fire of London in 1666.
The story will twist and turn as five murders are committed in various London landmarks, each one becoming more and more horrific and all intermingled with some of the greatest, most daring, bizarre and beautiful circus acts on Earth.
From sword swallowers to dare devil balancing acts, from hair hangers to demon dwarfs, from a pickled person to astounding aerial acts, all performed with a forked tongue firmly in each cheek by an almighty cast and the devil driven rock 'n' roll of Dr Haze & The Interceptors from Hell.
If Quentin Tarantino had directed Cirque Du Soleil then you would be only half way there.
