2.1 Ipswich based Circus Petite, would like to bring their amazing little show to our town as part of our 2018 tour.


“2018 is a big celebration year for circus as it’s the 250th anniversary year of its creation right here in Great Britain. Because of this we hope to generate extra publicity for each town we visit. (We do have a great PR company working for us – Bridge Marketing who have supported us on the last 2 tours)


Unlike most circuses we don’t have lots of big trucks; our complete show, tent and all is transported in 2 vans. Our tent is 15 meters in diameter and meets all relevant safety standards.


We seat 150 people in our little big top and have an amazingly high quality show with top acts from around the world. It’s like Billy Smarts Circus but intimate.


The dates we would like to visit would be from Monday 26th March until Sunday 1st April.


We would set up on the Monday with our first show commencing Wednesday at 5pm with the last show starting 2pm on Sunday.


We have all the relevant insurance, risk assessment and safety certificate documentation available.”
