Cirque Shanghai

This Christmas, China Town comes to Bloomsbury for a night of amazing acrobatics, dazzling dragons and oriental wonderment. On arrival, marvel at our awesome oriental stilt walkers and follow the hanging lanterns to a sparkling reception, when the gong sounds, the dining room is revealed with a breathtaking canopy of sparkling lights as you take your seats for a feast fit for an emperor.

Enjoy a superb line up of entertainment throughout your meal including dragon dancers, aerial performances and a few more performances along the way! After dinner the party begins when our unique sound ceiling is spectacularly lowered over the dancefloor and the disco is opened. If dancing is not your thing, try your luck at the tables of our fun casino or capture some memories at The Big Top photobooth. However you enjoy the party, you’ll have a night to remember!

Cirque Shanghai takes place in the Bloomsbury Big Top which is a fantastic event space featuring a light curtain canopy & walls plus fully themed reception, tables and entertainment. Be prepared to be amazed and enthralled as the magic of the circus comes to London this Christmas.
