There will be a host of different acts

Circus of Horrors started as a performance at Glastonbury in 1995 and is still going strong with its weird and wonderful performance art.

The new ReBorn, ReVamped & Rockin show will be a celebration of its history and will include an amalgamation of acts, driven by a rock 'n' roll soundscape.

Among the acts will be sword swallowers, aerialists hanging from their hair and teeth whilst suspended above the auditorium, jugglers, acrobats, hula hoopers, human pin cushions and more.

Ringmaster Dr Haze said: “The Circus of Horrors are itching to get back to what they know best, producing the best rip roaring sensational entertainment. It’s been far too long but the flicker at the end of the tunnel is turning into an inferno and we are ready.”

In 2011, The Circus of Horrors reached the semi-finalists of Britain’s Got Talent and have also appeared on shows including X Factor, This Morning and The One Show.

*The Circus of Horrors plays Rainton Arena on May 22, 2021. Tickets priced from £20-£25 are available
