Circus of Horrors heads to Theatre Royal Winchester

Circus of Horrors

Fans of sword swallowing, knife throwing and daredevil acrobatics will love the new show by the world-renowned Circus of Horrors, which rolls in to Theatre Royal Winchester on Sunday 17 March.

Circus of Horrors’ Psycho Asylum features a range of bizarre horror and burlesque acts – including twisted contortionists, flaming hula hoop dancers, hair hangers and strong men.

Backed by a rock music soundtrack and impressive light show, the circus will take to the stage to shock, stun, and leave audiences squirming a little and laughing a lot.

After first impressing crowds at Glastonbury Festival in 1995, Circus of Horrors became a West End hit and record breaker when it became the first circus to perform in London’s West End in over 100 years and the only circus to perform in a single venue in London (The Roundhouse) for an astounding 24 weeks (the previous record was 17 weeks).

Now a worldwide sensation – Circus of Horrors performs at festivals and theatres across the UK and globally, including in Germany, Japan and Moscow – where it became the first UK circus to perform in Russia. Circus of Horrors has performed on stage with the likes of Alice Cooper, Foo Fighters and Ozzy Osbourne, and become TV favourites featuring on shows such as The One Show, The X Factor and Who Wants To Be A Millionaire.
