Baby Big Top Circus

Coming soon at Wellington Country Park is the Bigtopmania Baby Big Top Circus Show.

The dates for your diary are Good Friday 3rd April to Easter Monday 6th April (2015).

And the whole of the Easter school holidays! 

Wellington Country Park is a fabulous outdoor play centre just outside Reading, Berkshire, Uk on the way to Basingstoke.  It is a huge family attraction centre, regularly getting outstanding reviews and is  full of children’s play activities, mixed with country park, lakes, deer park, walks, camping and more.  Not forgetting the ride on train and dinosaurs!

Each year there’s something new, though not sure what till we get there!

We have a long history of working at the park, performing in various guises, taking our  mobile play activities, inflatables and crazy bikes, supplying entertainers and installing our tents as outdoor venues for shows and activities.

Over the Easter holidays we supply  an exciting programme through the weekends and midweek.

Some of the events are listed here;

Half Term Circus Fun

Half term circus fun with PeteZa and Lucas Jet at Dingles!

The February school’s half term saw the Dingles Heritage Fairground experimenting with opening at this time of year for the first time.   Roaring success!

Dingles is an indoor attraction in Devon, managed by the Fairground Heritage Trust.   It is a collection of national importance restoring, maintaining and presenting fairground memoirs and we are lucky enough to have it right on our doorstep.  If in the area it really is worth a visit.

The attraction has lots of museum type exhibits dedicated to fairground history, circus and steam, living vehicles, transport,  rides, stalls, artworks, amusement machines, and a huge indoor fairground with beautiful rides and stalls you can go on.   Yes it’s a trip down memory lane but also has lots of appeal to youngsters.   Prepare to ride!

During this half term week we were asked to provide extra circus skills and entertainment.

For the Valentine’s weekend, PeteZa came in all fired up to celebrate the occasion… Hence the dress style!  Mr Lover Lover!

As well as some circus skills to have a go with, random mini-shows and pop-up entertainments, he  provided a huge range of crazy balloon sculptures obviously with an excess of heart shapes and pink balloons for valentines.

Once the weekend valentines theme was out-of-the-way, the fun continued every day with more balloon twisting, (kiddie life-size alien puppets being very popular) and entertainment.
