Once upon a time, there was a circus.

 A Psychic Circus, to be precise. A glorious haven for the misfits of the universe.

 But then, as is so often the way, it was hijacked by a trio of malevolent Gods.

 Things grew unpleasant. 

 Now, years later, the Gods are gone, but the scars of those who survived the Circus remain. After all, you can’t change the past. 

 Unless you’re the Children of the Circus… and you’re willing to sing.

 

(from left to right, Toyah Willcox, Ian Kubiak, Christopher Guard, Barnaby Eaton-Jones, Dee Sadler, Kenton Hall, Ian Reddington, and Sophie Aldred)

 

Sylvester himself sums it up rather beautifully…

‘To return to the worlds of Stephen Wyatt’s imagination, but as a wholly new character called the High Poet, means I get to be involved with the Psychic Circus rather than fighting against it! As a lover of the circus myself, juggling this new role was a joy (though I’m sad I didn’t get to play the spoons).

 

What fun to be reunited with all the wonderful cast from ‘The Greatest Show in the Galaxy’ again, 35 years later, and I hope you’ll all enjoy this time-sliding, sidestepping sequel from Barnaby Eaton-Jones and his bunch of clowns!”
