what we do

From humble beginnings as a one-man circus, Bigtopmania has evolved over the years. We now provide all sorts of circus shows, artistes, activities and themed props to a wide variety of events and celebrations.


Through spotting a gap in the market, we have found ourselves ourselves a niche. We are one of the few companies in the UK specialising in colourful circus big tops. We are both small enough for garden parties but big enough for venues. All shapes and sizes available.


As a UK festival and event supplier our work breaks down into 2 main areas. We supply festival marquees as venues and provide and manage children's areas.


We love alternative weddings! DIY celebrations, unique couples, festival brides, or quite simply anyone who wants something a little bit different!  We specialise in helping create the right ambience for your wonderful wedding dreams!

about us
Bigtopmania was established back in 1987 and we’ve spent the last 3 decades championing and performing live circus entertainment, delivering beautiful big tops to events, facilitating children’s interactive play at festivals and embracing alternative tastes in marquees for all sorts of occasions.
This has all been done through a passion for live events and festivals, a lot of honest hard work and great relationships with customers. Over the years we’ve encouraged and been part of the circus renaissance.
We like to think we’ve played a small part in the growing popularity of contemporary circus. Cirque is now top of the list of themes for every event planner wanting to add sparkle and sawdust to their next event.

Starting from a one man circus in a suitcase we have grown organically to become a well respected company within the events and showbiz industry.

We are a family run events company with four family members working full-time for the company and a big festival family as our support network.

Always remember, big things happen in little tents!
