Benson’s big top 5 circus acts inspired by The Greatest Showman

The Greatest Showman is this summer’s perfect party theme. The hit movie has inspired a wave of interest in circus entertainers and performers for weddings, birthdays parties, Christenings, corporate events and festivals. In honour of this success we have collated our ‘Big Top’ 5 circus performers that are bound to be the star attraction at your next event!

1. Stilt Walkers

Perfect for outdoor events our stilt walkers are big, bold and colourful characters. One of our most popular acts, our professional stilt walkers glide around attracting huge followings as they go!



It’s a sight to behold when our contortionists twist and turn into positions you never knew were possible. Whether you like it or not, contortionists are impressive crowd pleasers who deserve a round of applause!

3. Fire performers

Our most dangerous act. Fire performers put themselves in harm’s way to create a spectacular show of lights and sound, guaranteed to keep your audience mesmerised. Their intensive performances are best enjoyed after dark!

4. Acrobats

Be amazed as our acrobats flip, twist and balance using various body parts and apparatus. Their flexibility and strength will have onlookers hooked and they can perform solo, in pairs or as larger groups.

5. Magicians

Abracadabra! Our amazing magicians will have your audience spellbound with their incredible array of tricks and illusions. Great family-friendly entertainment for indoor and outdoor venues.

Voila! That’s our list complete not forgetting the most significant performer of them all. The Ringmaster or Ringmistress is a must to keep everyone and everything in order!
