My family of four adults went to the Battambang circus and had a fantastic night. The circus performers, dancers and musicians were amazing. Their enthusiasm and energy is contagious. I would thoroughly recommend taking time to see the circus on your visit to Battambang.

This was a very fun and entertaining show which demonstrated the circus school students talents. It was also nice knowing that some of the ticket fee was going to a worthy cause to help children's education in the city. Definitely recommend.

Much, much more entertaining than I anticipated, this animal-free circus is a non-stop hour or so packed with slap-stick comedy, acrobatics, live music and a Cambodian dance to set the scene. Operated by a local arts collective that extends its work to the visual arts...More

Was in Battambang for just a night and decided to catch the circus, even though I had just seen a show put up by the same troupe in Siem Reap a few days prior. While the Battambang set-up appeared less fancy, the show was way...More

the show begins at 7PM. As there are no reserved seat make sure you arrive earlier,then you will have time to discover our campus. The show tonight is "tchamleak". Looking forward to welcoming you tonight.
