About this show

A concoction of trapeze artists, daredevil circus acts, sword swallowers, voodoo acrobats, extreme contortionists and vampires - the finest examples of extreme circus! This event is not suitable for under 16s.

The Circus of Horrors started it's gruesome begging's at the 1995 Glastonbury Festival and became an instant hit, touring all over the world from Chile to Chatham, Argentina to Aberdeen and Japan to Jersey, including festival appearances with Alice Cooper, Eminem, Oasis, Iron Maiden, and many more. The latest incarnation ?Welcome to the Carnevil' is set in Victorian London in 1899. Jack the Ripper is still at large and it's the age of the Freakshow; a young girl dreams of running away to join the Circus, only to see her dream become a nightmare in a decrepit and corpse ridden Carnevil. The Carnevil is plagued by a swamp of killer clowns, sword swallowers, demon dwarfs, death deifying aerialists, a Guiness world record holding Hairculian diva, swinging solely from her hair, back flipping and fire limboing acrobats and lots lots more. This is a show ruled by the undead that climaxes 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.
