It’s back! The infamous Circus of Horrors and is bring its tour to Preston Guild Hall!
Featuring unbelievable sword swallowers, a hair-culian woman (who swings using her hair!), a strong man, whirlwind acrobats, flaming limbo, sensational aerialists, knife throwing, bow & arrow wielding Bond-like Diva's, twisted contortionists and lots more in this roller coaster of a show that is now celebrating 24 years on the road.
The Circus of Horrors started its grand and gruesome story at the 1995 Glastonbury Festival and became an instant hit, touring all over the world from Chile to Chatham, Argentina to Aberdeen, Japan to Jersey, including festival appearances with Alice Cooper, Eminem, Motley Crüe, Oasis, Iron Maiden, The Manic St. Preachers, Foo Fighters, Rammstein, Guns & Roses, Marilyn Manson, Ozzy Osbourne, and many more.
Theatres are not the only place the Circus of Horrors has raised its freakishly spectacular head, having performed at festivals throughout the world, such as Download, Reading, Leeds, Isle of Wight, T In The Park, Fuji Rock Festival, Wacken. The show made history when it became the 1st UK Circus to ever perform in Russia. Plus, it has graced London’s O2 stage a whopping 10 times!
Performing in Russia was not the 1st time however that the Circus of Horrors made history, as it became the only circus ever to reach the finals of Britons Got Talent and the 1st Circus to perform in London's West End in over 100 years, plus the only Circus to perform in a single venue in London (The Roundhouse) for an astounding 24 weeks!
In addition to BGT their appearances on various other TV shows have turned what set out as a cult show into a household name, without compromise – taking the extreme to the mainstream. The Circus’ TV credits now also boast The X Factor, The Slammer, Daybreak, Fairground Attractions, Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, Body Shockers, Fake Reaction, This Morning, Ant & Dec, and The One Show.
On Monday 11th February the Circus of Horrors will be gracing the stage of the Guild Hall’s Charter Theatre, performing it’s brand new show; The Psycho Asylum! Dare you come along?
