Don’t miss out on Battambang’s #1 attraction: the Phare Ponleu Selpak Circus! The performers in the big top of the Battambang circus are students in our 6 years professional circus program. In the future, they have the opportunity to perform in Siem Reap and tour around the world.

Circus tickets are $14 for adults, $7 for children.

The doors open at 6pm, and the shows start at 7pm. Tickets can be bought at the door, purchased ahead of time at many retailers in town, or to book tickets early, email [email protected]

The proceeds from your ticket support our programs in many ways, such as salaries for the performers, funding the purchase of our circus equipment, and allowing us to provide entirely free artistic education in circus, dance, music, and theatre. Not to mention our visual art and educational programs. By visiting the circus, you are funding the next generation of Cambodian artists.
