Welcome to Little Top – a magical first circus experience for babies aged 0-18 months and their adults.

At a time in their development when young children are discovering their own physicality, and the pleasures and perils of gravity, Little Top invites babies to experience all the fun of the circus. Roll up for a gently thrilling performance which includes spectacular balances, astonishing tumbles and inventive juggling.

Little Top will transport you to a playful, joyous, upside down, topsy-turvy world where people can fly, patterns fill the air and anything is possible.

SUPERFAN and Starcatchers co-production. Supported by Creative Scotland, Arts Depot and Lab:Time at The National Centre for Circus Arts.

” a delight for accompanying charmed adults as much as for the babies and toddlers… This show should be part of every child’s early development. And every parent’s.” – The Circus Diaries

Little Top toured venues across Scotland and was a sell-out show at Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2019, and performed at Barum Kulturhus in Norway. Little Top was invited to perform at Assitej World Congress in Japan in 2020, but unfortunately this was postponed due to the pandemic. It toured venues across Scotland again in Summer 2022.
