Voltini’s Sideshow – Sword Swallower & Victorian Circus | UK

Voltini’s Sideshow is a truly authentic Victorian Circus Sideshow performed in its own purpose built canvas tent.

Let us take you back in time with a family entertainment that hasnt been seen for many decades… brought to you by the master of lightning Professor Voltini, it is performed exactly as it would have been over a hundred years ago.

The barker delivers his outside bally, drawing in the crowds towards the tent…

“Come inside, ladies & gentlemen, come inside & see Madame Electra!, the voluptuous lady of lightning who defies death in the electric chair! See the impossible possible as Electra withstands 27,000 volts searing through her beautiful body… and to add to the thunder, we have the boneless wonder – Savita the Astonishing!, contortionist extraordinaire! She was born in Cuba but her body is 100% Indian rubber!”

An electric atmosphere guaranteed!

Performers change, but Voltini’s Sideshow currently features a contortionist, sword swallower & electrocution ‘Tesla’ act. It is not for the faint hearted!

Standard Length of Performance: The show runs for 20-30 minutes.


“I would like to add thanks for your superb performance, which our guests and reviewers have been raving about. What really sets your act from other Tesla coil demonstrations is the extent of narrative and tension that you put into the whole thing. It was so brilliantly thought through and a real joy to watch. We are tremendously grateful that you agreed to be involved.”

“They are a slick, popular and exciting act which generates a lot of interest from all corners of the entertainment industry and we will most certainly be booking them again in the near future. They are always extremely well organised, punctual, jovial and totally perspicacious in their shows content & practical issues. Their professional attitude and sense of fun have ensured a superb reputation among clients, bookers & audience alike.”
