October turned out to be a magnificent month when they operated four different shows in four different locations, one unit in Italy, another in Germany, a further one touring UK theatres, and the fourth unit running for the whole month at Tulleys Shocktober Fest. These gigs attracted over 100,000 people!! And that is in just one month!!
The Circus of Horrors contains some nudity and language of an adult nature. It is not suitable for children, people of a nervous disposition, chavs & sissies. And that sounds like the best advertisement!
