Our Big Top

The big top which we are using at the moment measures 80ft (24m) in diameter and was specially made for us by the famous Italian tentmakers Scola Teloni. We can seat up to 500 people in comfort, with a mixture of chairs and tierd bucket seating.

The Big Top takes approximately 5 hours to ‘build up’ and 2½ to ‘pull down’. In the course of our season which runs from early March to early November we visit as many as 70 venues up and down the country, sometimes staying for only one or two days!

Everything therefore is designed for ease of erecting and dismantling so that we can continue to bring you Circus – still the Greatest Show on Earth!
