Venue Introduction

This Christmas, China Town comes to Bloomsbury for a night of amazing acrobatics, dazzling dragons and oriental wonderment.

On arrival, marvel at our awesome oriental stilt walkers and follow the hanging lanterns to a sparkling reception, when the gong sounds, the dining room is revealed with a breathtaking canopy of sparkling lights as you take your seats for a feast fit for an emperor.

Enjoy a superb line up of entertainment throughout your meal including dragon dancers, aerial performances and a few more performances along the way!

After dinner the party begins when our unique sound ceiling is spectacularly lowered over the dancefloor and the disco is opened.

If dancing is not your thing, try your luck at the tables of our fun casino or capture some memories at The Big Top photobooth. However you enjoy the party, you’ll have a night to remember!

Cirque Shanghai is hosted within the award winning Bloomsbury Big Top. The venue is a purpose built structure for corporate and private events catering for up to 700 guests for a seated event. The venue is situated a short distance from Russell Square tube station and guests can see the shining peaks of The Big Top as they approach the venue and enter Cirque Shanghai and unveil the wonder within.

Stilt walkers are waiting to welcome you to Cirque Shanghai and invite you to unveil the wonders within while you enjoy a crisp cool glass of prosecco. Cirque Shanghai will not disappoint, with vivid red and gold tables, glowing lanterns and stunning centrepieces.

Your guests are seated on private tables underneath the magically lit canopy with a great view of the entertainment taking place overhead.
