About Circus Maximus

The UK's foremost circus competition returns this April - live once more from the giant purple cow. In a week of exciting heats, 20 of the UK's hottest circus acts perform for your applause, adoration and votes to win a place in the grand final. Sunday is the live grand final where the winners from each heat compete for the tital of circus maximus 2015, the £4,000 cash prize and the chance to create a new show with Udderbelly Productions and The National Centre for Circus Arts. Previous winners include Barely Methodical Troupe, whose show 'Bromance' has toured the world, and is now headlining Udderbelly Festival at Southbank Centre. Presided over by our resident MC, and featuring special guest performers throughout the week, Circus Maximus is an exhilarating night of dazzling jugglers, daring aerialists and dynamic scrobats.
