The show that stormed into the finals of Britain’s Got Talent and now a West End smash is backing Great Yarmouth to mark its 21st anniversary in spectacular style.

The last few of years has seen the profile of The Circus of Horrors jump tremendously after rampaging into the finals of Britain’s Got Talent and to this date it is still the only circus ever to reach the finals.

Its appearances on various subsequent TV shows have turned what set out as a cult show into a household name – taking the extreme to the mainstream.

Last year saw another giant leap for the show when it began a series of dates in London’s West End becoming the first circus to appear in a West End Theatre for 100 years and in 2015 saw the show return to The Fuji Rock Festival in Japan.

The Circus of Horrors started it’s gruesome beginning 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 Crue, Oasis, Iron Maiden, The Manic St Preachers, Foo Fighters and many more.

The latest incarnation‘Welcome to the Carnevi is set in Victorian London in 1899, Jack the Ripper was still at large and this was the age of the Freakshow. A young girl dreamed of running away to join the circus only to see her dream become a nightmare in a decrepit and corpse ridden Carnevil, plagued by a swamp of Killer Klowns, Sword Swallowers, Demon Dwarfs, Death Defying Aerialists, a Guinness World Record holding Hairculian Diva swinging solely from her hair, back flipping and fire limboing acrobats and lots more.

The Circus of Horrors – The Night of the Zombie is on tour throughout the UK and reaches the Yarmouth’s Hippodrome on March 11 with shows only at 6pm and 9pm.
