A SHOW which music mogul Simon Cowell said the Royal family would “love to watch” stops off in Stevenage as part of a nationwide tour.

Britain’s Got Talent semi-finalists Circus of Horrors come to the Gordon Craig Theatre at the end of the month for their ‘chilling tale’, The Ventriloquist.

As part of the performance, set in Berlin, Germany, in 1921, a dare devil sword swallower will be swallowing a lit neon tube, a trapeze artist will be doing tricks hung solely from her partner’s hair and a contortionist will be firing an arrow from a long bow with her feet.

There will also be rock ’n’ roll from Dr Haze and The Interceptors From Hell during the evening, which is inspired by the ventriloquist movies Devil Doll and The Dead of Night.

The Circus of Horrors’ appearance on the ITV1 talent show last year received plaudits from all of the judges with Amanda Holden describing it as “gruesomely good, like Rocky Horror on acid”.

David Hasselhoff said: “Fantastic, That’s what I call entertainment, I want to party with you guys”.

Simon Cowell added: “I loved it, if I was the Royal Family, I’d love to watch it.”

The Ventriloquist, which will be performed at more than 50 venues across the country through to the end of March, visits the theatre in Lytton Way on Monday, January 30, at 8pm.
