In Pictures: Boom & Bang Go Big At The Roundhouse

Hands down one of the best variety nights in town, Boom & Bang Circus have been entertaining the denizens of the Hippodrome Casino for quite some time now. The show has been on the road before but their most recent event was something of a spectacular, even for them.

The Roundhouse’s Summer Sessions has seen the Camden venue host an eclectic mix of live music, comedy, dance, spoken word, live cinema and more. Last Friday, the venue was given over to Boom & Bang Circus for one of their biggest shows to date. The troupe are rarely seen outside the Hippodrome Casino’s Matcham Room so this gig was a fine opportunity for them to display just why they are one of the finest bunch of vaudevillians around.
