he Circus of Horrors is an action-packed, fast-paced, celebration of bizarre and fantastical circus acts. On the 23rd January, this lively show is coming to Newport, with a performance at the Riverfront Theatre. And there is still time to get your tickets!
Each year The Circus of Horrors performs over a hundred shows, across the UK, and around the world. The show weaves the incredible circus acts into a background narrative, with a full set of ‘devil driven Rock n Roll’. I can assure you this is a show you will never forget.
I’ve been to the show twice and each time has been an adventure, full of astounding acts to make you squeal. Not for the faint-hearted, this show includes nudity, sword swallowing and amazing feats that you won’t see anywhere else. This is what warrants the show’s 16+ rating.
The Circus of Horrors started its journey 23 years ago at the Glastonbury Festival and was an instant hit. Since then they have toured the world, appeared on TV and made appearances with acts including Alice Cooper, Iron Maiden and The Manic Street Preachers.
The show has been described as ‘Cirque Du Soleil meets the Chamber of Horrors’. It may not be for the easily offended, but if you are open to an evening of unusual entertainment, this one is not to be missed.
The show is on Tuesday 23rd of January at 7:30. For further details, or to book your tickets, visit The Riverfront's website.
Expect an evening of shocks, frights, laughs and gasps as you are taken on a journey to the underworld, where the creatures of the night are in charge.
