Big Top 30mx54m

Tents 30m System


This system is available in several different configurations ranging from 30m x 30m to 30m x 66m.

In addition to our round traditional circus showtent, we have designed, built and introduced new pyramid ends. These have delivered a radical improvement in audience sight-lines when an end stage is used.
