Peter Campbell-Wells has taken some of his favourite stunts from the repertoire of fraudulent 19th Century spirit mediums, and put them together as a children's magic show!
Our intrepid magician presents a dazzling troupe of eerie entertainers. These are the most highly-trained and talented spooks working in entertainment today – although considering they’re the world’s only performing spooks, that isn't saying much!
His card magician is in a huff, the orchestra is tone deaf, and the star of the show is always hungry! Can Pete keep control and bring them in line for The Watermill Theatre?
Nominated for Best Children's Event at the Brighton Fringe by the readers of Latest7 magazine, Spook Circus played to packed venues at the Edinburgh, Brighton and Windsor Fringe Festivals!
Spook Circus is a family show, suitable for all ages.
Performance lasts for approximately 45 minutes

Friends Priority Booking opens 7 May at 10am
Booking opens to all on 14 May at 10am
A sensory spectacle which will be performed in the gardens and around The Watermill. Sing with the Mock Turtle, take tea with the Mad Hatter, and play croquet with the Queen of Hearts - but be sure to come last or you could lose your head! Follow the strange characters and backwards riddles to discover scenes, installations and games relating to Alice’s adventure.
This theatrical experience puts you in the midst of the action, enabling you to hear, see, smell and experience the lives of the characters as a story unfolds around you. A family show for those with active imaginations and a sense of adventure!
Suitable for age 6 upwards.
The performance lasts for approximately one hour with no interval. Be prepared to be on your feet throughout. In the event of bad weather, the performance will go ahead around the theatre buildings.
Adventures in Wonderland was a sell-out success at the Greenwich Children’s Festival in 2012.
