A Halloween show in Great Yarmouth is promising spooky, silly laughs along with the thrills of circus stunts.

The Hippodrome circus is busy planning for another edition of its Spooktacular show, which is now in its 10th year and opens on October 20 for the half term. 

The show sees comedy duo Jack Jay and Johnny Mac embark on a hilarious spooky journey to Dracula's castle for a Halloween night like no other.

They will be joined by a cast of circus acts, dancers and aerialists as they navigate through tombs, graveyards and plenty of ghosts along the way. 

It is set against an immersive spooky backdrop that encompasses the Hippodrome arena.

His co-host and producer Jack Jay said: "It's always lots of fun to challenge ourselves in creating a different atmosphere in this amazing building with huge sets and props.

Owner Peter Jay said he has been blown away by the response to ticket sales so far and is urging people to book early. 

"We've been so pleased with the response from our audiences. Since going on sale our box office has been inundated with calls and while there are still great seats left, tickets are selling out fast."

Tickets can be booked by calling 01493 738877, through the box office or online at www.hippodromecircus.co.uk

The show runs from October 20 to 31 with tickets for adults ranging from £20 to £28 and for children from £13 to £18.
