Circuses

Circus curtains

The circus is a place of wonder and delight, where children and adults alike revel in the talent of the performing artists. Some of the acrobatics and performances take years of practice to perfect, but no matter how good the performance if the circus setting isn’t right then the it can be all for nothing.

From the seating to the lights, the ceiling and flooring to the curtains each element of the circus needs to be perfect to provide the right atmosphere for not only the crowd but the performers too.

Taming the Surroundings

Although the stage and performance area may look the part at the circus it isn’t just this that has an impact on the atmosphere. The audience want to feel like they are in a world of imagination so leaving scaffolding and tent structures on view can detract from the performance.

Using fabric to cover scaffolding that matches the performance area allows the audience to stay engaged in the circus performance. As well as covering scaffolding and rigging Whaleys can provide fabric to use as celling strips or drapes from the roof to make the area feel smaller and more personal for the audience.

There are arguments that you should hire drapes as a circus but with our manufacturing quality it is far more cost effective in the long run with some of our customers having their curtains for well over a decade.
