From Bedtime Stories to circus, artist takeover days to opera, there’s been a little cheeky something online for everyone this year at Back to Ours, and now they’re turning up the creep factor with a Halloween special.
Under the watchful eye of Ringmaster Valen Vain, Sofa Spooktacular brings together a cabaret of alternative acts to thrill, mesmerise and entertain – if you dare tune in.
Valen commented: “All can say is – come over to the dark side with us this Halloween and you might never go back!
“We’ve got fire, we’ve got acrobatics, aerial performance, flow artistry, and much, much more – you’ll just have to tune in to find out what. It’s Halloween after all, so expect a few surprises.”
Louise Yates, Back to Ours Director added: “We love these cabaret acts because there’s really something for everyone.
“They’re all incredibly skilled artists who perform in events all over the world – now we’re beaming them into your home, Right on your Sofa.
“So get tucked up, put a candle in the pumpkin, and enjoy something a little bit different.”
Artists taking part in the Sofa Spooktacular include:
When the night’s dark, you seek the light – but when the light’s held by Grim Spirit, you’d better be prepared…
Tasha’s been a professional circus artist for over five years now, performing all over the world and currently with Lost in Translation Circus. She’ll be performing an act fusing hand-balancing, contortion and acrobatics to create a spooky Halloween treat.

Lovable monster maker, creepy creature impersonator, spooky strutter and costume conjuror, Arran’s been performing for five years as their incarnation of Noss (Nosferatu), bringing their melancholic humour to Burlesque, Cabaret and Drag events throughout the UK and Europe.
