Prepare yourself for a nightmare of zombies and death defying stunts when the Circus of Horrors comes to town.

The circus show is back with another incarnation since reaching the finals of Britain’s Got Talent in 2011 and performances on the West End stage since 2013.

Set in 2020, the Night of the Zombie is set in a decrepit and corpse ridden London, plagued by a swamp of Zombies.

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.

There will be sword swallowers, knife throwers, balancing acts, astounding aerialists, a demon dwarf, a Guinness World Record holding hair-hanging beauty, Sinister Sisters, gyrating fire limboing acrobats and more.

The Circus of Horrors was the only circus act to reach the finals of Britain’s Got Talent. Now it is back to mark its 20th Anniversary in spectacular style.

It is regularly in the limelight and the performers have appeared on TV shows such as the X Factor, the One Show and a Royal Command Performance.

In 2013 the show began a series of dates in London’s West End and became the first circus to appear in a West End Theatre for 100 years. The show’s gruesome beginning started at the Glastonbury Festival in 1995 and it became an instant hit, touring all over the world from Chile to Chatham, Argentina to Aberdeen, Japan to Jersey.
