What can I expect to see on my visit?

Big Kid Circus is a family run business with entertainment at the forefront of all they do.

Whilst husband and wife, Biliana and Kiril are passionate about putting on the best performances possible for their audiences, the love for circus entertaining doesn’t stop there. The next generation of the Kirilov family are David, Julia and Nicole who are the children of Biliana and Kiril, and have taken on the tradition and responsibility to continue the family legacy.

Nicole, being the youngest of the three, enjoys performing and aims to carry on the circus path to fame when she grows up, and follow in her parents and older siblings footsteps.

An integral part of the logistics side of things, David manages the team of employees, and travels frequently between Asia and the UK to provide training and support to teams in both regions.

Graduating with a BA in Events Management from Leeds Beckett University, as well as a master’s degree in Public Relations and Communications, Julia aims to grow the company by promoting inclusivity. She aims to show the social importance of the circus within today’s society.

This year, Big Kid Circus is touring Scotland with ‘MAYHEM’.

The MAYHEM show at Big Kid Circus will leave you on the edge of your seat. From flying acrobats to incredible motorbike stunts, there is everything to keep the whole family entertained.

The Big Top opens 30 minutes before the show starts, so there is plenty of time to grab your snacks and find your seat.

Whilst prams and buggies are not allowed inside the seating area, there is a handy area where they can be parked out of the way for everyone’s safety, just ask the staff on hand where to go.

The stunning show will last approximately one hour, forty-five minutes and non-flash photography and video is welcome. If you do take any pictures or videos of the performances and your family enjoying their time in the Big Top, don’t forget to tag the Big Kid Circus team on Facebook or Instagram so they can see how much fun you’ve been having.

How much are tickets and where can I buy them?

Prices may vary depending on the time and date of the show, but children under two get in for free, as well as one carer per disabled person getting free entry into the Big Top.
