Big Top Tent

The Traditional Circular Tent, also known as the Big Top, is essentially a wider than usual Traditional Canvas Pole Tent with round ends. It has a wonderfully cavernous feel at 60’ / 18m diameter.

This circular tent can be extended to the same footprint as the Orangery and is a great alternative for larger scale weddings and parties. It works very well as a venue at smart festivals.

Like the Traditional Canvas Pole Tents, it is made from a 12oz waxed cotton canvas in a cream colour and has our signature burgundy piping along a scalloped exterior valance.

Again, it features wooden poles, canvas roof and walls, hemp guy ropes, decorative wooden finials with the option to have miles of coloured bunting and coloured pole socks at no extra cost.

There are options for different styles of window walls; walls are very easy to remove to open the tent up and entrances can be created at any point.

We are proud of our extensive range of hand made cotton linings that we invite you to discuss with us regarding your preferred style or colour scheming. This particular tent works well without a roof lining to make the most of its sheer majesty. Internal swaged bunting is the way to go.

Flooring that works best in Traditional Circular Tents is the rustic Coir matting; a coconut hessian material. Alternatively a brand new carpet in any choice of colour can sharpen it right up, and of course solid wooden flooring is available if needed.
