Primary School Circus Show

Book your primary school circus show here!

Are you looking to book a primary school circus show to wow your pupils and staff?

Do you have a circus project that you want to start with an inspirational event? Or simply celebrating a school milestone or headteacher retirement.

Do you want a big top on your field or just bring the magic of the big top to your school hall? Anything’s possible and we love circus in schools. The combination of excitable school children mixed with the magic of circus is a recipe for an extremely enjoyable and rewarding way to spend our days.

This is for the school that really wants to stand out. Sending a message to the community that this is a school that goes the extra mile to provide unforgettable experiences for their pupils. If you like the sound of this, read a couple of recent examples below.

The children at St Margaret’s Community Academy in Lowestoft were welcomed to school by Lucas riding around on his unicycle as the parents dropped the kids off. The excitement was building and there was a wonderful buzz about the playground. We had arrived the day before to set the big top up, a cute little time-lapse of this can be seen below and was shared 57 times by people on the schools facebook page.


The day kicked things off with a circus show for half the school, 270 excited children packed into our cute little red and white big top. Warming us up with much hilarity and winding up from ringmaster/clown PeteZa. The circus show featured a 4 person cast of Pete,  myself (Lucas), Moses and Joanne. For a small cast show there was a lot of variety on display, we had acrobatics, clowning, unicycling, aerial hoop, handstand, club passing, hat juggling, cigar boxes etc etc. It was so much fun to perform to these wonderful children and they came out with some delightful comments post show. One boy bounced up and down and hugged me saying ‘When I grow up I want to be you’. Another couple of lads said ‘You’re my favourite’. But I won’t go on about that or brandish it across the internet.


The Year 6’s were treated to a ramped up schedule of circus workshops which on top of all the traditional circus skills also included; Trapeze lessons, tightrope walking and unicycling lessons. The hidden message in all of the workshop sessions is always to teach the kids the value of perseverance when attempting to accomplish a new skill. One chap in Year 6 did not get off the unicycle for the whole session and he really did so well. He managed to ride about 3 metres in only 45 minutes which is really impressive stuff.

Back in February, a larger team of Bigtopmania’s finest performers were in action at Northampton University. We had the same big top up on campus there and it was a similar set up in terms of equipment. As well as running sessions for the students to experience the circus skills and try new things we were also there to provide fun for the children of Preston Hedges Primary School.

We treated the children to a fantastic circus show and the lucky year 5’s got to experience unicycling and trapeze.
