About Little Top

0 - 18 Months

A magical first circus experience for babies and their grown-ups.

At a time in their development when young children are discovering their own physicality and the pleasures and perils of gravity, Little Top invites babies to experience spectacular balances, astonishing tumbles and inventive juggling in a specially-designed set that miniaturises the magic of the Big Top.

Little Top’s beautiful set creates a colourful, cosy and welcoming space where professional circus acrobats and jugglers perform up close in babies’ line of sight, making eye contact, and interacting and responding to their young audience. Babies and adults alike are transported into a joyous, topsy-turvy world where patterns fill the air and anything is possible.

"A gentle but hugely engaging series of skills, tricks and tumbles, which has its tiny audience members bright-eyed and itching to join in." The Stage
