Rutherglen Reformer - - The Ticket -

The show that stormed into the fi­nals of Bri­tain’s Got Tal­ent and now a West End smash is back at Mother­well Con­cert Hall 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 an 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.

The Cir­cus of Hor­rors started it’s grue­some beg­ging’s 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 Carnevil’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 dreamt 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 Gui­ness World Record hold­ing Hair­cu­lian Diva swing­ing solely from her hair, back flip­ping and fire lim­bo­ing ac­ro­bats and lots, lots more,
