Our all-weather indoor Big Top arena plays host to a variety of shows throughout the year, usually during school holidays.

The next event in the Big Top will be the return of the Sooty Show on 15th & 16th July, followed by our main run of shows for the school summer holidays, starting on Saturday 22nd July. Even better, all of these shows are included in the price of a standard admission ticket. You can book online in advance and save 15%.
