Circus of Horrors Revamped & Rocking Adult Show - Circus in Great Yarmouth, Great Yarmouth - Great Yarmouth

Hippodrome Circus


Circus Of Horrors first unleashed its macabre delights on unsuspecting audiences at Glastonbury in 1995. Since then, this grimly entertaining spectacle of the amazing and the bizarre has toured the world, reached the finals of Britain’s Got Talent, set a Guinness World Record (for the most vampires in one place at one time – 1,040, if you’re keeping score), became the first UK circus to perform in Russia and entertained festivalgoers at Download, Reading and Leeds, Fuji Rock Festival, Wacken and many, many more. It’s even popped up on Judge Rinder, The One Show, This Morning and Daybreak, fulfilling its mission of “taking the extreme to the mainstream”.

The dark and deviant acts at a typically atypical performance mix together a witch’s brew of the rock theatrics of an Alice Cooper show with a heady combination of burlesque, steampunk, gothic horror, black comedy and Victorian freak shows. Over the years, Circus Of Horrors has accumulated enthusiastic reviews from celebrity fans including Graham Norton, Scott Mills, David Hasselhoff and Simon Cowell. Britain’s Got Talent judge Amanda Holden compared it to “Rocky Horror on acid”.

As part of the show’s 25th anniversary, it teamed up with seminal punk band The Damned and the world-famous Hammer House of Horrors for a show at the London Palladium, preceded by a funeral procession through the West End. In September 2020, Circus Of Horrors announced further 25th anniversary celebrations in the form of a series of COVID-secure performances.
