Days with our Circus tents, Circus in Schools, Circus skills workshops and lots more!
How much does it cost?
Having Circus Sensible at your event can cost between £150+VAT and £2500+VAT. It depends what you want. Circus workshops and Walkabout entertainments start at £275+VAT while Days with our Circus tents cost £1275+VAT upwards. If you have a budget we can work out a package to give you the best value.
What Circus skills are included in a Circus workshop?
Our Circus skills workshops generally include Juggling, with scarves, balls and clubs, Chinese Diabolo, Devilstick, Plate spinning, Poi, Chinese ribbons, Cigar boxes, Lolo balls, Fun wheels etc. We can also bring along Unicycles and a tightrope on request.
What part of the country will Circus Sensible travel to?
We cover the whole of the UK. Last year we went as far south as Portsmouth and Brighton, and as far north as Fife and Ayr in Scotland. We have a huge team of very experienced staff scattered all over country.
How many people can take part in a Circus skills workshop?
Circus skills workshops can be for almost any number of people at one time. In schools and structured workshop settings we try to restrict numbers to 35 maximum for each tutor. In 'drop-in' circus workshops numbers are governed by how much equipment we put out and how many of us there are.
In the course of a day in a school up to 475 children can have a go if we use the Circus tent and the school hall. For more specific information on numbers, please call or email us.
What other workshops can you provide?
As well as Circus skills workshops, we can run workshops in Schools and at events in the following skills:
African and Brazilian Percussion, African Dance, Samba, Magic, Caricatures and Cartoon drawing, Balloon modelling, Puppetry and Drama.
How much space do you need to put up one of your Circus tents?
We have three sizes of 'baby' Big Top. They are all circular, in 30, 36 and 48 foot diameters. The smallest tent needs a 45 foot diameter circle of ground to go up. The 36 footer needs a 50 foot diameter circle and the 48 foot tent needs a 60 foot diameter circle.
Will the 'baby' Big Tops go up on concrete?
Unfortunately we can only put our tents up on grassed areas as we have to stake the tents down. We need relatively level, well drained ground with no underground pipes or cables. We also need to have access to the site for our vehicles.
How are travel expenses calculated?
The first 60 miles are free, then it's 40p/mile or 50p/mile with our Circus tents.
Can I book Circus Sensible for more than one day?
Yes, we can come for as many days as you like. We often spend a few days or even a week in a school. Another option is to have Circus skills workshops in School on a Friday and then Shows and workshops with our Circus tents as part of your School fete on the Saturday.
How do I make a booking with Circus Sensible?
