How much space will I need?

This depends on the type of entertainment that you choose to book. Most roaming performers only require the same amount of space that an ordinary guest would need to move about your event. However, some performers and shows do need a specific amount of space.

If the venue is deemed unsuitable by Big Top Entertainment or it's performers, for any reason whatsoever, it is the client's responsibility to provide a suitable alternative venue. If a suitable alternative venue is not provided then the fee will remain payable in full.

Listed below are details of the types of entertainment that require a specific amount of space.


Stilt Walkers require a minimum ceiling height of 3m. They also require enough space to walk between tables etc. However, they only require just a bit more room than an ordinary sized person.

 

Unicyclists require a minimum ceiling height of 3m. They also need plenty of room to ride about, so they are not really suited to moving between tables, for example at a wedding reception dinner.

 

Background fire performers require a fixed performance space of 3m x 3m per performer, with 3m ceiling clearance. Please note that we only perform fire at OUTDOOR events. We do not perform fire indoors, or underneath tents / marquees etc. Fire performance areas must be well away from flammable items such as table cloths, draping, curtains etc. Please read our Fire performance technical requirements

 

The Comedy Magic Variety Show & Magical Circus Variety Show requires a minimum of 3m x 2m clear performance space. If you would like unicycling to be performed, then we also require a minimum of 3m ceiling clearance. A high ceiling will also help with the juggling part of this show, although our performers can adapt the juggling to fit in to rooms with a lower ceiling.

 

Fire show:

Nova, the 1 man Fire Show 3m x 3m clear performance space, plus a minimum 3m vertical clearance. If  you wish to include fire breathing in the Nova show, unlimited vertical clearance will be required.

'Aurora' the electric glow juggling show has very specific requirements. Please view the full space and technical requirements for 'Aurora'

 

Games (kids' parties) As our games involve lots of running around, we require a large, flat, unobstructed space, on GRASS, measuring a minimum of 10m x 5m. We do not play our games on hard surfaces. We do not play games in the same hall as a formal / sit down dinner. For larger parties more space may be required.
