It is with great sadness that the Wilkie family have to announce that after many years of the Big top standing on the Boswell Wilkie Circus farm in Randvaal, the beloved Big Top, that holds so many precious memories for those young and old, will be taken down on the 10th December 2015.
After years under the hot South African sun, the circus Big Top has seen its last days in the spotlight and will unfortunately be retiring. The family have made the difficult decision not to replace the Big Top, which means that they will no longer have circus participation parties and school outings. We will, however, continue to host parties in the beautiful gardens of Café du Cirque, as well as in our newly renovated rustic stables venue, where the kiddies can enjoy the jungle gym, pony rides or perhaps even a clown. We do have a few tricks up our sleeves and we are currently working on a new project for children’s parties. Updates will be posted on the Café du Cirque Facebook page.
The Wilkie’s are still, however, keeping the circus alive, and have a vast variety of performers available for private and corporate events.
We encourage you all to come and say your nostalgic goodbyes and take your last photographs with our beautiful Italian Big Top. We are open Tuesdays – Fridays from 10h00 to 17h00, and Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays from 08h00 to 17h00.
The Swingettes are 3 girls that perform a 6 minute act on a double aerial ring. They currently have 3 themes: Burlesque, Tango and Cirque. They can also work to any music to suit your event.
