Roll up, roll up! It’s good old-fashioned fun, right here, right now!
Run away and join the circus!
Joe Bolton creates an exciting ‘make-a-circus’, with plenty of volunteers from the crowd showing off their skills to the beat of the circus drums, much to the amazement and amusement of family, friends and onlookers.
Joe expertly rolls from the show into a dynamic juggling game enjoyed by all ages and an open circus play session.
With this format we are able to adapt the time of any shows to suit the flow of an event on the day, with ongoing circus skill activities between performances. Upcoming show times are drawn up on the chalk board that hangs in the mini-top.
Our distinctive shade canopy adds to the carnival atmosphere and provides a central place for our festival activities and entertainment.
The mini-top requires a suitable surface to peg down into, preferably grass.
Size including pegs: 10 metre diameter. Shade canopy: 7 metre diameter.
Some additional open space for circus play sessions is ideal.
No power required, we use a compact mobile P.A. system for this format.
(Safe outfit, no power cables, no noisy generators or fans)
Have suitcase, will travel.
We also offer interactive shows and open circus skills workshops without the mini-top.
The best form of family-friendly entertainment for your fair, fête or fun day, bringing the circus in a suitcase for every occasion.
Joe Bolton’s Suitcase Circus makes a wonderful addition to any celebration or gathering.
