Based on the bestselling book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler

This heart-warming tale about friendship and helping those in need is brought to life in a musical, puppet-filled adventure, following on from Little Angel Theatre’s bestselling adaptations of Julia Donaldson’s picture books including The Singing Mermaid and The Everywhere Bear.

There is much humour, lots of audience participation, all neatly woven into the spectacular storyline!

Join this talented local company as they present this traditional, family pantomime full of surprises, fun and laughter, loaded with popular songs, dance, special effects and comedy for all the family.

Early bird ticket prices of just £12 per ticket until September! (£15 each after)

Hot on the heels of the Circus of Horrors  Phantasmagoria the ‘Witch' comes a sensational NEW SHOW - THE HAUNTED FAIRGROUND

- Set in a decrepit Fairground on the edge of nowhere. Haunted by creatures of the unknown who had been Plastinated as exhibits in The House of Wax & brought back to life by a Tesla Coil machine to run havoc.

This FANGtastic new show is set to blow your mind with an amazing set, stellar lights, special effects & of course Beautifully Bizarre Circus acts,a sinister story and the darkest of magic all performed to an original Rock score.

When the Circus of Horrors began 27 years ago at Glastonbury 1995 many people thought it wouldn’t last 27 weeks let alone 27 years, but with its ability to reinvent itself time & time again it has taken the extreme to the mainstream and become a household name after reaching the finals of Britain’s Got Talent, performing in London’s West End & tour around the World.

Whether a Rock fan or theatregoer The Circus of Horrors has something for everyone.
Imagine a brilliant rock show combined with amazing, bizarre & dare devil Circus acts, a stellar light show all performed with a forked tongue firmly in each cheek. If Quentin Tarantino had directed Cirque Du Soleil you would be half way there.

Tickets - £25

Students and over 60's - £20

£5 Off All Tickets With Promo Code 'EARLYBAT' when selecting seat. Valid till 31st October 2022.
