CIRQUE BIJOU present the Children’s Area

12.00-17.00 Saturday and Sunday

Cirque Bijou invite you and your little ones to join us for some interactive entertainment at Bristol Balloon Fiesta, on the green outside Ashton Court Mansion.

From babies to teens to the still-young-at-heart, there are plenty of things to see and do in our programme of performances, workshops and installations. Come along and get involved!

The workshops, street shows and games for the 2017 event programmed by Cirque Bijou will be announced in due course.


Cirque Bijou pushes the boundaries of contemporary circus, street theatre and spectacle, seeking out the new, unexpected and extraordinary. From stadiums and festivals to intimate spaces, we make shows that are always an unforgettable and exquisitely-crafted experience.

Cirque Bijou’s story began in 1999 with the inimitable artistic partnership of Julian Bracey and Billy Alwen. The company has since become a creative powerhouse with a team of producers and a global network of collaborators. The Cirque Bijou ethos combines a pioneering spirit with sky-high production values that gives their shows a unique edge few can match.

Cirque Bijou are Key Arts Providers to Bristol City Council and are delighted to bring this new programme of work to Bristol Balloon Fiesta after a very successful weekend producing the Children’s Area and Circus Stage at Bristol Harbour Festival in July.
