We hired The Grinch from the circus and he was brilliant. He was professional and brought a great amount of excitement to our event. The grinch strutted around the shopping centre interactive with large audiences and being his cheeky self. Families loved him and everyone gathered around for photos. I am very happy with his performance and would book again.

I just wanted to drop you an email to say how fantastic your performers were on Saturday.

The Showman Circus were perfect for our corporate "The Greatest Showman" theme, with a good choice of acts and the fact that we could tailor the show and pick the acts that we wanted was perfect. The show itself was attention grabbing and each act had their own wow factor. Thanks for such a well organised and enjoyable show.
