THE show that stormed into the finals of Britain's Got Talent and is now a West End smash is back to mark its 21st Anniversary in spectacular style.

The Circus Of Horrors returns to Ferneham Hall in Fareham on Sunday with a brand new show - Welcome to the Carnevil!

The show is still the only circus ever to reach the finals of Britain's Got Talent. Its appearances on various subsequent TV shows have turned what set out as a cult show into a household name – taking the extreme to the mainstream. TV credits now include The X Factor, The Slammer, Daybreak, Fairground Attractions, Who wants to be a Millionaire, Body Shockers, Fake Reaction, This Morning, Ant & Dec, The One Show and A Royal Command Performance.

Last year the show began a series of dates in London, becoming the first circus to appear in a West End Theatre for 100 years. The show also returned to The Fuji Rock Festival in Japan.

The Circus of Horrors started at the 1995 Glastonbury Festival and became an instant hit, touring all over the world from Chile to Chatham, Argentina to Aberdeen, Japan to Jersey.

The show has even made festival appearances with Alice Cooper, Eminem, Motley Crue, Oasis, Iron Maiden, The Manic St Preachers, Foo Fighters and many more.

The latest production is set in Victorian London in 1899, the age of the freak show and when Jack the Ripper was still at large. A young girl dreamt of running away to join the Circus only to see her dream become a nightmare in a decrepit and corpse- ridden Carnevil, plagued by a swamp of Killer Klowns, Sword Swallowers, Demon Dwarfs, Death Defying Aerialists, A Guinness World Record holding 'Hairculian' Diva swinging solely from her hair, back flipping and fire limboing acrobats.

The story twists and turns with grisly murders and sensational shocks – all interwoven with some of the greatest and most bizarre circus acts on earth, performed by an almighty cast with a forked tongue firmly in each cheek and the devil- driven rock n’ roll of Dr Haze & The Interceptors from Hell.
