The Travelling Circus Logo-02


Every weekend from November 15th right through until February 2020, Mercato Metropolitano will be partying like its 1999 with a totally unique, new space and concept for London nightlife — essentially an indoor festival every night in Elephant and Castle capturing the colour, romance and good times of what Rob and Josie do best.

You probably won’t hear Last Christmas and there won’t be any tinsel or elves in sight, but you will witness a global array of musical and circus talent including our main residents Circus Raj who have flown over from Jaipur, India just for your delectation, boasting sword swallowers, acrobats, slack line tightrope, pole climbing and contortionists.

You could end up being entertained by a cross-dressing Russian Ballerina, a Spanish punk flamenco tribute or a Prince lookalike and dancing the night away to electro swing, gypsy folk, and madcap-mashups whilst drinking fine cocktails and eating from MM’s legendary array of food traders. Roll up, roll up!

You can buy individual show tickets, or even book a large group into one of the private areas for the night.
