Forget everything you think you know about circus. Magic Circus is refreshingly different. More modern and yes, even a bit more crazy and cheeky. Here and there you will find a subtle wink to traditional circus, modern acts, acts that move you. The proof modern circus entertainment can be suitable for the entire family, including the kids. When are you going to experience the Magic Circus?


Safety and Happiness, a brand new experience of circus enjoyment, all thanks to several covid19 measures. A lot of things in the way we receive and entertain are very different. We take the regulations and measures very serious. Audience members who don’t follow the rules and or instructions of the Magic Team can be denied acces to, or will be removed from, the circus premises without the right to a ticket refund.

Besides extra cleaning the Magic Team will also ensure extra ventilation of the big top before and after each performance. We are the only circus in The Netherlands with a air ventilation system via the dome of the big top.

We have listed the principal measures and rules below. If you want to read more about the protocol PLEASE CLICK HERE.
