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 date it’s still the only circus ever to reach the finals.

The latest incarnation, Welcome to the Carnevil, is set in Victorian London in 1899, when Jack the Ripper was still at large and this was the age of the freak show. A young girl dreams 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 clowns, sword swallowers, demon dwarfs, death defying aerialists, a Guinness world record holding hairculean diva swinging solely from her hair, back flipping and fire limboing acrobats and more.

Steve Steinman’s Meatloaf will be rocking the High Street West venue on March 22.

Since his appearance on Stars in their Eyes show performing as Meat Loaf, Steve Steinman has become a star in his own right.


Together with a top band, The Meat Loaf Story delivers the greatest hits from Meat Loaf’s catalogue including Took the Words Right Out of My Mouth, Anything for Love, Dead Ringer for Love and Bat Out of Hell, plus many 

Rounding off the trio of one-night shows in style is Mercury – The Ultimate Queen Tribute on March 23.

Winners of the National Tribute Awards, Mercury have firmly established themselves as one of the world’s most authentic tributes to Queen.

Mercury formed in 1998 and have since gone on to play theatres, festivals and high profile shows across the UK and Europe – from Holland to Hungary and from Majorca through to the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.
