Frequently asked questions
What are the different seating options?
We now offer two different seating options: Tiered seating tickets, and Ringside tickets. Tiered seats are in a tiered seating stand with steps, so you get a good view, and are a mixture of side-facing and front-facing. The circus performs in the round so you will be able to enjoy the performances from any angle. Ringside seats are individual chairs, at floor-level in two rows right at the front. Ringside seats are accessible (please call 07706168507 to book wheelchair spaces). Seats are not numbered and are first-come-first-served, so please arrive early if you want to sit together with a large group (the tent opens 30 minutes before each show).
Are there different prices for Adults and Children?
No, everyone over 2 years old pays the same price. Under 2's sitting on a lap go free, and don't need a ticket.
Can I bring my baby/toddler?
Yes, under 2's are very welcome, and they don't need a ticket if they sit on your lap.
Do you offer concessions, carer, or disabled tickets?
There is no concession price for OAP, etc. We do a Carer Ticket which allows one carer free per disabled ticket holder. The Tiered seats are not accessible (there are steps), but the Ringside seats are accessible, step-free, and can accommodate Wheelchairs and strollers if you let us know in advance. Please give us a call on 07706168507 to find out more and to book tickets for Carers or Wheelchair users/accessible seats.
How can I get tickets?
You can book online at our website www.circusfuntasia.co.uk and pay through our booking agent Skiddle. Or you can ring us direct on 07706168507 and pay with a card over the phone. You can also pay on the door when you arrive, or visit our Box Office.
If I booked through Skiddle do I have to print my tickets off?
No, you can show the barcode on your phone using the Skiddle app.
When is the on-site Box Office open?
Our Box Office opens on site in front of the Big Top daily from 10am until the end of the last show (please check website for specific info).
Do you take card payments?
Yes, we have a card machine on site. We also offer cash-back up to £30. However, our card machines are dependent on good phone signal so please check on our Facebook page for certain sites (particularly Penzance) and bring cash just in case.
Can I bring my push-chair?
Due to health and safety guidelines we are not allowed pushchairs inside the seating area. However, you are very welcome to bring your little ones in their pushchair as far as the tent entrance and we can store them for you. All items left at your own risk.
Can I bring my own food?
Only food and drink purchased from Circus Funtasia can be brought inside. Don't worry, we have a fully licenced bar with beer, wine and cider, plus soft drinks, hot drinks, popcorn, candy floss, slush, burgers, and hot dogs. We also sell flashing lights and a face-painting stall inside the tent.
How long is the show?
Around 1 hour and 45 minutes. There is a 15 minute interval halfway through.
When does the tent open before the show?
The tent opens 30 minutes before each show. You can pick your seats from this time. We also have face painting before the show and during the interval.
Can I take pictures or film?
Yes, you can take pictures or short films of the show. Please do not use flash, and we ask that you tag #CircusFuntasia or @CircusFuntasia if you want to post the images on social media. Please respect the performers, and also try not to spoil the show for those who haven't seen it yet!
Are there any strobe lights in the show?
Yes, there are some short moments of flashing lights. Please contact us beforehand or ask a member of staff if you would like more information.
Do you have ear defenders available?
Yes, we have a limited number of ear defenders which can be borrowed for the duration of the show. These are on a first-come-first-served basis so please bring your own if you think you'll need them. Please ask a member of staff to borrow a pair.
