The show that stormed into the finals of Britain’s Got Talent and became a West End smash, The Circus of Horrors, is back to mark its 20th anniversary in spectacular style and it arrives at Milton Keynes Theatre for one night only on Tuesday, January 13.

The last few years has seen the profile of The Circus of Horrors jump tremendously after rampaging intothe finals of Britain’s Got Talent.

Its appearances on various subsequent TV shows have turned what set out as a cult show into a household name.

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 show began at the 1995 Glastonbury Festival and became an instant hit, touring all over the world, including festival appearances with Alice Cooper, Eminem, Motley Crue, Oasis, Iron Maiden, The Manic St Preachers and Marilyn Manson.

The latest incarnation, The Night of the Zombie, is set in 2020, a decrepit and corpse-ridden London, plagued by a swarm of zombies.

In a city ruled by the undead and climaxing in an awesome flaming apocalypse, the story twists and turns with grisly murders and sensational shocks, interwoven with some of the most bizarre circus acts on earth – including sword swallowers, knife throwers, daredevil balancing acts,astounding aerialists, a demon dwarf, the Guinness World Record-holding ‘hairculian’ hair-hanging Sinister Sisters, and fire limboing acrobats.

The show is performed by a cast with a forked tongue firmly in each cheek and the rock ’n’ roll of Dr Haze & The Interceptors from Hell.

Tickets are from £16 to £26. Call 0844 871 7652 or visit
