About Us

Tom and Sparkles

We are Tom and Amanda from Big Top Entertainment, and we’ve come up with a creative way to the adapt our business, and entertain your kiddies during lockdown, as live events and parties are not currently possible. Filmed at our home in Durban, South Africa, during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have created two different fun filled 30 minute Downloadable, Interactive Magic and Circus Shows. As the shows are downloadable you can watch them in the comfort of your own home, on your laptop, tablet, or phone.

We now offer PERSONALISED downloadable shows, where we will include your child’s name. Or you can choose our INSTANT DOWNLOAD version.

We thank you for supporting our small family business.

We have over 35 years combined experience in the entertainment industry. Our downloadable, interactive magic and circus shows are packed full of fun!

Tom is a multi-talented entertainer, and has been a professional performer since 1998. Originally from Cape Town, he moved to Durban in 2004. He first learned to juggle, as one year there weren’t many good waves to surf! He has performed at events all over South Africa and internationally including UK, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Saudi Arabia, and Namibia.

Amanda, also known as Sparkles, is originally from the UK. She came to South Africa in 2004 on a round the world trip, fell in love with the country, and then with a South African clown! She never went home and has been face painting and balloon twisting since 2005.

Tom and Amanda live in Durban, South Africa, with their little boy, who loves to watch their shows!
