Cirque Bijou


There is circus magic to be found behind the walls of Caravanserai, and this year we will have more than ever! Celebrating 250 years of circus, Cirque Bijou will be out in full force, bringing the downright bizarre and the utmost brilliance to Bestival as always.

During the daytime, indulge in some unique circus flavours by trying out some dishes at the Circus Cafe. Cooked up in Caravanserai by acrobats, jugglers and jokers, and served on a spinning plate, you never quite know what you are going to get when you order from this offbeat menu…

Then as the sun begins to set, Cirque Bijou will present an array of magnificent aerial shows. Shimmering trapeze artists will fly high above the waltzers and caravans, a high line walker will dance with danger amongst the tree tops, and as the clock hits midnight the Camionette stage will explode with sizzle and sass as Cirque Bijou present their midnight cabaret.

Cirque Bijou are Bristol based show makers, pushing the boundaries of contemporary circus, street theatre and spectacle, seeking out the new, unexpected and extraordinary. From shows for stadiums and festivals to intimate spaces, their work is always an unforgettable and exquisitely-crafted experience.
