2018 will be a huge time for Circus as we celebrate 250 years since its birth in London. the brain child of Sergeant Major Philip Astley, the father of modern circus. Astley's vision & invention went on to become a major art form throughout the world.
However circus has changed more in the past 30 years than in its proud 250 year history, with the emergence of Cirque Du Soleil, Circus Archaos & from the UK The Circus of Horrors.
In addition to the 100 venue UK theatre tour we have recently performed in Festivals throughout the World including Download, Reading, Leeds, Isle of White, T in the Park etc in the UK, Fuji Rock Festival in Japan (twice), Wacken festival in Germany plus shows in Chile, Uruguay, Holland, Belgium, Argentina, France, Italy, Ireland, Finland, Hong Kong and Moscow where it created history by becoming the 1st UK Circus ever to perform in Russia. And an astounding 10 nights in London's O2.
It is not the 1st time however that The Circus of Horrors has created history, it became the only circus ever to reach the finals of Britons Got Talent and the 1st Circus to perform in London's West End for over 100 years, & the only Circus to perform in a single venue in London (The Roundhouse) for an astounding 24 weeks, (previous record was 17 weeks).
