Festival Big Top Hire

We provide festival marquees and colourful circus big-tops to all sorts of UK events.

Bigtopmania have been providing circus big-tops, marquees and colourful tents of all shapes and sizes to lots of different festivals in the UK for the last 17 years.
That's on top of all the other festival work we do too of course! 
Think festival organising, circus shows, children's play areas, circus skills workshops, crazy bikes have-a-go sessions, wacky inflatables, stilt-walking, jugglers, trapeze workshops, balloon modelling and simple festival attendance to enjoy ourselves; the list goes on!

Our Niche

It’s important to stress that we don’t do big tops that can hold thousands of people at once. Our biggest big top can accommodate just over 1000 in a gig capacity but if you’re looking to host 3000 ravers at once then we are not the company for you. If you’re looking for a splash of colour and to create a beautiful event landscape with our festival marquees then keep browsing!

Where we have found our niche is providing medium sized big tops and marquees to smaller festivals or providing smaller venues at larger festivals.

Our range of Festival Marquees.

Quality and value for money

Having spent a number of weeks contacting Marquee companies, a recommendation to Pete and Big Top Mania was a breath of fresh air. His enthusiasm, advice, and open minded approach to events allowed us to create something that I previously wouldn't have thought achievable. Compared to everything else that I search I couldn't possibly recommend a better quality and value for money service. We have already been in touch regarding future events.

High Standard

Pete and the team at Big Top Mania have been supplying tents to us at Cornbury Festival for a number of years.  Pete's team have delivered on time, every time to a high standard, and have a great selection of tents and marquees ofall sizes.

We have quite a range of different tents and marquees and so event organisers often book multiple structures from us and return to us year after year for a reliable, professional service.

Basing our working systems on current laws and industry-specific guidance we aim to ensure a strong culture of working safely.

As such, we are conscientious and thorough with our work approach, training and equipment provision and as fully compliant as possible with the demands of particular event sites and health and safety.

We provide full advance documentation to event organisers and complex safety testing with an approved audit system.

By building relationships with festival producers and having the same key staff members returning year on year the whole install process is more efficient.

We have our own reputation to consider but we put that aside and support the event and not just blow our own trumpet! 

We are used to working at new event sites all the time but it’s always nice returning to the same familiar festival sites each year and building a pop-up village of big tops.

Festival organisers use our structures for;

  • Bars
  • Comedy Venues
  • Main Stages
  • Acoustic Venues
  • Children’s Area’s Welfare
  • Campsite HQ
  • Craft Tents
  • Yoga and Wellbeing workshops
  • Family and children's play areas
  • VIP tents
  • Side stalls
  • First Aid Tents
  • Production, office & storage tents
  • Catering Tents
  • Covid-19 safety Tents
  • Circus or cabaret Tents.
