Circus of Horrors

THE NEVER-ENDING NIGHTMARE.

 

The Circus of Horrors celebrates its 21st anniversary as it takes to the road with its latest incarnation “The Never-ending Nightmare”. The spectacular features an amazing amalgamation of bizarre, brave & beautiful acts all woven into a Alice in Horrorland type story driven by a mainly original soundscape & performed with a forked tongue firmly in each cheek!
