Big Top Circus tents are fantastically versatile structures and have been traditionally used for many years for the purposes of entertainment and spectacle. The spacious interior provides all sorts of options and uses for many different types of events. From interesting dinner venues, wedding venues, seminars and speeches to performances, showcases, galleries and of course live music. The old school look and vibrant colours really add a sense of theatre to any event.

Our Big Top tents offer full 360-degree weather proofing and can be configured with as many entrances and exits as you need. The interior can also be provided with any staging, lighting or seating requirements depending on your event as well as blackout roof sheets to give your show the best visuals possible.

Our Circus tents follow much the same design that has been used for countless years in this industry, though of course with a few modern touches to bring them into the 21st century. They are erected around a sturdy steel king pole or poles in the centre with the PVC roof sheets then pulled out to meet the side walls. This creates a large open internal space whist still being mobile enough for temporary use. As always, all our structures comply with relevant health & safety, weight loading and weather proofing regulations.

Please note, only to be used on grass or soft standing.
