The Greatest Show on Earth

Prepare to be part of The Greatest Show on Earth

Phineas Barnum is down on his luck. Sacked from his boring office job, he is looking for a way to feed his wife and family when he realises that life is too short to waste. Risking everything, he puts together The Greatest Show On Earth - a spectacular circus designed to show the public things they've never seen before.

The show is a phenomenal success and soon becomes famous for its exciting, crazy and colourful acts. But when the Mayor and the City Council come to shut it down, can Barnum win them round and keep his family of performers together? 

The Greatest Show On Earth is a specially written show combining uplifting songs, dazzling dancing and a heart-warming story into a fantastic production that every 7-12 would love to be a part of. 

During the five days of fun, your child can discover the joys of performing and make some great new friends along the way. At the end of the course, they will even get the chance to present their show complete with props and costumes. 

Our courses are run by highly trained actors, musicians and dancers who will work their magic to both ensure your child enjoys every second and to nurture their true potential. They'll guide the children each step of the way and encourage them to project their voices, learn energetic dances and sing some original pop songs - all while developing the Perform 4 Cs: Confidence, Concentration, Communication and Coordination.

Expect an action-packed five days of fun where each child comes away with a great sense of achievement. But there's no need to take our word for it, click here to see what parents have said about previous holiday courses.


Samih enjoyed himself so much this week and seemed to develop in confidence from this experience. He learned the songs so quickly and managed to keep up with everything going on despite being the youngest. I was very impressed.

The content was fantastic, age appropriate and Charlotte seemed to love every single minute of the week’s course. She was totally immersed. Katie was really enthusiastic, engaging and kept the children completely involved from the start on Monday.

– Mr Stephen Riley

Hannah is brilliant, she engaged the children, gave them challenges and brung an enormous amount of enjoyment for an hour each day. Oscar loved the interaction and group work this course provided. It was extremely well run under extraordinary circumstances.

– Mrs Hannah Wolff

Second time Aidan has done a holiday course and he loved it again. We'll definitely be bringing him back for more holiday sessions in the future.

– Mr C. Thompson

Both boys absolutely loved the Perform. The camp was well organised and the staff were incredibly personable, help and very kind to the children.

– Mrs Dalia Jennings

Rachel was fantastic and Amelie had an amazing time.  She loved performing and then watching herself and has been talking about it all week. I loved watching too - and cried of course. The Secret Garden show was so sweet and funny and the music so moving and uplifting. 

– Mrs Chloe Billing

5 stars all round. Tom couldn’t wait to go every morning. He returned having enjoyed the day thoroughly, singing himself to sleep with the new songs he’d learnt. Thanks to all involved.

– Ms Clare Bradbury

Laura, Karen and Ollie were fabulous, so enthusiastic and what they produced as a show in 3 days was amazing. The kids so obviously were enjoying it all. Oliver loved every minute of it. I think it's been the highlight of the summer holidays!

– Tracey Scott

Isabel wants to say that she “really really really enjoyed the class”!

– Dr Rebecca Khor

Our kids really loved the Perform course! We are new to Perform and we're really glad that we joined the holiday camp. My son is a little bit introverted, so it was great to see him really step up his confidence in just 3 days!
