About

Thursday 26th February 2015: 7.30pm

The Night of the Zombie

The show that stormed into the finals of Britain's Got Talent & now a West End smash is back to mark its 20th Anniversary in spectacular style.

The last few 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, Its TV credits now boast The X Factor, The Slammer, Daybreak, Fairground Attractions, Who wants to be a Millionaire, Body Shockers, Fake Reaction, This Morning, Ant & Dec, The One Show and A Royal Command Performance.

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.

The show started its gruesome beginnings 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 and including festival appearances with Alice Cooper, Eminem, Motley Crüe, Oasis, Iron Maiden, The Manic St Preachers, Marilyn Manson and many more.

The latest incarnation 'The Night of the Zombie' is set in 2020 - a decrepit & corpse ridden London - plagued by a swamp of Zombies. A city ruled by the un-dead and climaxing in an awesome flaming apocalypse.

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, sword swallowers, knife-throwers, daredevil balancing acts, astounding aerialists, a demon dwarf, a Guinness-World-Record holding 'hairculian' hair-hanging beauty, Sinister Sisters, gyrating fire-limboeing acrobats and much more.
