This summer sees the launch of a brand new epic music festival Cool Britannia — which will take place at Knebworth — the stately home of rock.
Next to some of the best of British rock and dance music Cool Britannia will host ‘Dr Haze’s Freak Show – Featuring Acts From The Infamous Circus of Horrors’.
Audiences can get their chills and thrills from an array of acts – including sword swallowers, contortionist, acrobats, knife throwers, a strong man and many more.
The performance will be held in the unique Carters Steam Fair Grand Palace of Entertainment and will be open at the Friday Night Welcome Party, as well as both Saturday and Sunday across the weekend.
‘Dr Haze’s Freak Show – Featuring Acts From The Infamous Circus of Horrors’ is the only circus to ever reach the finals of Britain’s Got Talent and has appeared on TV shows such as The Slammer, Daybreak, This Morning and The One Show.
The unique circus – performed to live rock music – is the only circus to have a run at a West End Theatre for 100 years and is currently on a nationwide tour.
