The Circus of Horrors’ London After Midnight tour arrives at Hertford Theatre on Friday, January 31.

“This is set to be something really different for Hertford and we are delighted that such a big name West End show is coming to perform here,” said a spokeswoman for the venue in The Wash, Hertford.

A circus with a difference, the performers wowed Britain’s Got Talent judge Simon Cowell the other year.

That was followed by TV appearances on shows such as The X Factor, The Slammer, Daybreak, Fairground Attractions, Who Wants to be a Millionaire?, Body Shockers and Fake Reaction.

Following previous incarnations as The Ventriloquist and The Curse of the Devil Doll, the current tour will reach Hertford after an eight-week run at The Lyric Theatre in London’s West End.

The shock ‘n’ roll show started its gruesome beginnings at the 1995 Glastonbury Festival and became an instant hit, touring all over the world from Japan to Jersey.

The latest incarnation, London After Midnight, is inspired by the film of the same name.

Set in plague-ridden London and climaxing with the Great Fire of 1666, 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.

The show features sword swallowers, knife throwers, daredevil balancing acts, a dwarf strong man, sinister sisters, astounding aerialists, gyrating acrobats, dislocating contortionists and much more.

Tickets cost £20, and £18 concessions, and are available from the box office on 01992 531500 or from www.hertfordtheatre.com
