Circus Parties for you!

For children and grown ups looking to release their inner child!

Grown ups deserve amazing parties as well!

Our big top circus tents fit snugly into back gardens or paddocks so they are the ideal chance for anyone wanting to throw a circus party. In fact, not just a circus party, we’ve enjoyed people’s interpretations of different themes. Whether that’s a ‘Carnival of Colour’, Moulin Rouge, or Mardi Gras theme, you might be holding a Mad Hatters tea party as a summer celebration but you need a weird and wonderful venue and some quirky circus to go alongside it.

Most likely, on recent evidence you are hosting ‘The Greatest Show’ or a rework of The Greatest Showman theme. We don’t know the stats but it has to be one of the most popular themes of the last 10 years. There’s so much room for wow factor and amazing photos. It’s a party theme that is popular with all generations, has its own soundtrack and fancy dress options are glamorous as well as fun. As a result of the phenomenon that it has become, we have performed at hundreds of Greatest Showman parties for children that are obsessed with the film but we’ve also been part of some incredible charity balls and university balls that use the theme as inspiration for their event.

Exceeded all expectations

I used Big Top Mania for a party last weekend and I have to say they exceeded all my expectations. Not only was their price highly competitive but they couldn't have done more in terms of extras provided. The set up was faultless and their staff were helpful and courteous. I can honestly say that I have never dealt with a company who have done more for me. If you are looking for a big top, or little top, these chaps are tip top!

Professional and Efficient

We cannot praise Pete and his excellent team highly enough; they put up such a beautiful tent for my 50th Circus Party, and were a joy to work with. Professional and efficient, they coped with some extremely challenging weather, and worked tirelessly to get everything perfect.  Our guests loved dancing the night away in such a beautiful place, and we have so many memories of all the fun and colour- a real triumph thanks to Bigtopmania.

Bigtopmania has all the tools at their disposal to help you host a stunning circus party.
It is generally a collaborative effort from us and yourselves. So, whilst we provide all the essential infrastructure such as the big top, entertainment, flooring, lighting and dancefloor, the real magic happens when you add your own individual touches!
Why not make your own circus signs; ‘Cirque Du *insert family name*' or DIY drinks bottle labels with circus print?

We can do smaller garden party shows in our smaller colourful circus tents or for the larger events we sometimes create a "marquee village" with big tops linked together to form different rooms or venues as part of the same event.

Circus parties are not limited to using our big tops, we cater to smaller events in indoor venues or do a show outdoors with or without our circus props such as circus ring, circus backdrop and circus seating.
As said, they are not even limited to circus theme parties.
Circus shows are just a great way to engage a crowd and bring everyone together at a celebration; whether that’s as part of a show or in a hands-on circus skills workshop activity to burn some energy.

Here’s an example of a top-level children’s party from Bigtopmania

PeteZa normally features in the show, with his clown routines or as Ringmaster/MC. You will likely also get appearances from his talented family! Lucas Jet provides top unicycling & juggling whilst daughter Leonie provides aerial trapeze or silks & hula hooping.

We have various mascot characters such as Big Bear too!

In collaboration with our network of talented circus performers we create spectacular shows and put on parties that are regularly quoted as ‘the best party they’ve ever had’.

Children joining in a workshop

A Birthday Circus Party on a spectacular scale with a Big Top and Circus show, acts and artists to create magical party events your child and your guests will never forget.

In many smaller gardens we use a small round ‘Baby Big Top’ with a range of equipment for play and entertainment and present a show with 1 or 2 artists or more.

Or more simply: small circus theme parties in your hall or home, a one-man circus clown show by PeteZa; play, party balloons, wonderful modelling balloons, big balloons, children inside bubbles, disco party games etc; more in keeping with a traditional children’s birthday party!

Transfixed for the entire party

I am literally blown away! I can't express enough how amazing Lucas and Jony were at my daughters 5th birthday party yesterday - we had a room full of over 40 children and all their parents who were transfixed for the entire party. All the parents who came said that it was the best party they had been to and how amazing the guys were. I also loved that the children were so involved, getting to try out so many things throughout the party from the giant inflatable ball, to being surrounded by giant bubbles, learning to spin plates, standing on the guys shoulders, uni-cycling... I could go on and on and on....

All the children and parents loved them!

Lucas and Jonny came to entertain a group of 22 children at a garden party in London on Saturday. I can't tell you how wonderful they were! All the children and parents loved them! They got the children spinning plates, juggling and standing on them in great moves! The giant red ball they had them bouncing on was unbelievable fun! They do a show as the pinnacle of the party which all children and parents watched in delight. I honestly can't tell you how much great feedback I got from the guests - young and older!


A party to remember

We recently had the pleasure of having Lucas and Jonny perform their incredible show at our daughter Rubies 6th birthday party, and just wow! What a show they put on... they make a great circus team! The children were totally mesmerised watching the show and Lucas was also very good with getting the audience of excited children and grownups involved too which was super fun to watch. Rubie got involved with opening the show as well which she really loved! The ginormous red bouncy ball was a great highlight too... the children really had such a fantastic time. And yes, they are still chatting about it at school this week! Thank you for all of your efforts in making it a party to remember.
