Big Top Circus

The Butlin’s Big Top Circus is back for another year of thrill-seeking stunts and astonishing acrobatics, but this time with a tropical twist…

During our 2017 School Summer Holiday breaks, we’ll be welcoming artistes from world-class Circo Cuba Libre. Infused with rhythms of salsa and merengue, the acts will wow you with their performances (in the air and on the ground!) including bar work, masquerade and the renowned Wheel of Death! Performing for the first time ever in the UK during our School Summer Holiday breaks, you'll be the first to see them before they go on tour in September.

Under our purpose-built Big Top tents, you’ll feel the true nostalgia of the circus in an atmosphere that’s sure to delight the whole family; whether you’re introducing your little ones to their first circus experience or time-travelling to your own childhood.
