“The show that stormed into the finals of Britain’s Got Talent is back, an awe-inspiring rock ’n’ roller coaster of a show that flies like a bat out of hell to celebrate an astounding 18 years of shock ’n’ roll,” said a spokesman.

“Ever since its conception at the 1995 Glastonbury Festival, The Circus of Horrors has toured the world achieving cult status and dragging circus screaming and shouting into the 21st century and beyond.

“The new sensation is inspired by the legendary and sinister lost movie London After Midnight and is packed with new shocks that will take you on a whirlwind journey through a plague-ridden London in 1665 and culminating with the Great Fire of London in 1666.

“The story will twist and turn as five murders are committed in various London landmarks, each one becoming more and more horrific and all intermingled with some of the greatest, most daring, bizarre and beautiful circus acts on earth.
