“Ladies and Gentleman I promise you thrills, your hearts desire and the darkest of dreams. I offer spectacle, I’ll show you paths untrod, honour those who dared to be themselves and hold high all who chose to be different. Dear friends this is a day to twist in your skin, this is the time to growl at the bars in front of you, this is the night to let it out.”
- The Ringmaster
Menagerie: Twisted Circus, is the sixth incarnation of an annual fundraising event hosted by Two Rivers Gallery.
