Following a record-breaking Christmas performance, The Hippodrome prepares to welcome the Circus of Horrors.

The show caters for everyone by offering both adult and children-friendly versions of the half term show.

The new show, Dr Haze's Cabaret of Curiosities, is said to have stellar lights and special effects, along with the well-known circus acts and a touch of dark magic.

Organisers also promise audiences will also be gripped by a sinister story, all set to an original rock score.

The show honours Dr Haze, the creator of the Circus of Horrors and it serves as a tribute to the legacy he has made.

London’s Time Out once quoted ‘Barnum would be proud’ when describing Dr Haze and The Circus of Horrors.

The show is set to offer acts including sword swallowers, 'hairculean' aerialists, 'whirlwind' jugglers, 'twisted' contortionists, 'voodoo' acrobats and more.

These daring acts have been seen by many following the troupe reaching the finals of Britain's Got Talent and becoming a West End and global hit.
