Dark Circus 

An evening of sideshow and burlesque, something decidedly different from our usual fare.  It is an 18+ event as it will contain adult themes, swearing, nudity, blinky lights and things you should never ever try at home. Break out your halloween costumes and your fancy dress.

It is an BYO event, but there will be food available from our friends at Hello Fresh. This is a joint production between Dark Circus and Circus Monoxide.

Doors open 6.30, 28th October. Meals start at 7pm and performance starts at 8pm. The meals consist of 3 soft shell tacos from Fresh Home Cooking. Vegetarian, vegan, gluten free and dairy free options are available. This event will have non-alcoholic beverages and snacks for sale.
