About the event
t’s amazing that we are heading for our 25th anniversary. When we started in Glastonbury back in 1995, people thought it would run for 25 weeks let alone 25 years, yet here we are a quarter of a century later, still touring all over the World, still getting rave reviews & still getting loads of media coverage.
In 2018 we saw the Circus of Horrors tour Poland, Germany, Ireland, Belgium, Italy, Holland & the UK, in addition to appearances at major Festivals such as Download where we were 2nd in the 'not to be missed' listings behind Guns & Roses but ahead of Marilyn Manson and Ozzy Osbourne. October turned out to be a magnificent month when we operated four different shows in different locations, one unit in Italy, another in Germany, a further one touring UK theatres and the fourth unit running for the whole month in Tulleys Shocktober Fest. In that amazing month alone we were seen by approximately 90,000 people.
The Summer of 2019 saw the Circus of Horrors return to both Download & Glastonbury Festivals and in October the Circus of Horrors will operate 3 different shows . Including a return to Tulleys Shocktober Fest, the COH will also present an Adams Family Friendly version of the show as part of Tulleys Spookfest.
While the Tulleys shows are running the Circus of Horrors will commence its 25th Anniversary tour in Theatres up and down the UK, including a special 1 off event in the London Palladium with The Damned.
