A pickled person is wanted for the The Circus of Horrors performances in Bromsgrove, as the show is on the hunt for new blood.

And while there may be plenty of pickled people about every Saturday when the pubs close, that isn’t what organisers have in mind.

A spokesman said: “One of the most unusual vacancies has emerged as The Circus of Horrors rolls into town at Artrix on Tuesday October 22 and looking for a new pickled person!

“Applicants don’t have to be a bottle blond to join the outrageous Circus of Horrors but they will be asked to fit in a bottle measuring only 2’ tall & 18’’ in diameter, they must be over 18 years old, not suffer from claustrophobia and be able to squeeze into tight spaces.”

The lucky winner could go on to perform with the infamous cult show on its forthcoming show at The Artrix.

The tour will also take the show to the Download and Glastonbury Festivals as part of its upcoming 25th anniversary tour.

The spokesman added: Starting its gruesome beginnings in the 1995 Glastonbury Festival The Circus of Horrors became an instant hit, touring all over the world from Chile to Chatham, Argentina to Aberdeen, Japan to Jersey, Moscow to Middlesborough, Hong Kong to Hull in fact it is still shocking all over the world and including festival appearances with Alice Cooper, Eminem, Motley Cure, Oasis, Iron Maiden, The Manic St Preachers, Foo Fighters, Aerosmith, Rob Zombie, Guns & Roses, Marilyn Manson and many more.

“In 2018 alone it toured Poland, Germany, Ireland, Belgium, Italy, Holland and the UK. The almighty cast that stormed into the finals of Britain’s Got Talent is now a West End and World Wide Hit will take you on a rock n’ roller coaster ride of amazing & Bizarre acts. It is a circus like no other and a show you simply can’t afford to miss.”

Anyone who thinks they have the bottle for this job should email asia@psycho.co.uk to arrange an audition.
