Twisted Alice in Wonderland show features the bizarre, brave and beautiful in a special 21st anniversary show.
The Circus of Horrors is celebrating its 21st anniversary with their latest freak show The Never-ending Nightmare at Great Yarmouth Hippodrome.
The show features an amalgamation of bizarre, brave and beautiful acts all woven into a Alice in Horrorland-type story driven by a mainly original soundtrack and performed with forked tongue firmly in each cheek.
The Circus of Horrors started its gruesome beginnings at the 1995 Glastonbury Festival as a cult show and has been turned into a household name with on various television credits including Britain's Got Talent, The X Factor, Who Wants to be a Millionaire, The One Show and A Royal Command Performance.
A spokesman for the show said: 'The Horrors love coming to the historic Hippodrome on their UK tour, it gives them the space to really let their hair down.
