Here are our terms and conditions:


When booking karaoke with us here at The Electric Circus we ask for a £25.00 (£50.00 on our larger rooms) deposit to be made to secure your booking. You have 7 days from your initial booking date to pay this deposit. We have the right to cancel any bookings with overdue deposits to make way for new bookings. We will always try to contact you before cancelling however.

Your deposit can be refunded back on to the card on which you paid it on the night of your bookings. Or it can be put towards payment of your final bill. Please let a member of staff know on arrival which you prefer.

Terms for our dance classes can be found HERE or at the bottom of this page.


Hen and Stag parties are more than welcome at The Electric Circus but we do not allow any Hen/Stag paraphernalia in the venue at all – this includes, but is not limited to, the following items:

  • Matching T-shirts
  • Sashes
  • Inflatables – under no circumstances do we allow inflatable genitalia, blow up dolls or any other inflatable items
  • Strippers, kissograms or any other kind of hired in entertainment
  • Whistles or any other ‘noise making’ equipment
  • Balloons
  • Tiaras, Veils, Deely Boppers or any other kind of Hen/Stag headgear

  • Flashing accessories

Please note that themed fancy dress is fine so if you were planning to all come in tuxedos, as Disney Princesses, as your favourite 80s film stars, as Where’s Wally’s or as characters from Grease, for example, then that would be absolutely fine.


Normally entry is included free in your room booking rate. However occasionally the Circus main area is hired by outside organisations and it is not possible for this to be included. These do not affect the operation of the rooms and on such rare occasions you will be advised in advance and you have the option to cancel or pay in advance for club entry.


We can hire our private karaoke rooms to under 18s however according to the 2005 Licensing Act anyone under the age of 18 cannot be on the premises after 22:00 hours (10pm). Anyone under the legal drinking age of 18 caught drinking will be ejected from the building immediately and no refunds will be issued.


On arrival guests will be asked to handover a credit/debit card or a form of valid ID such as a passport or drivers licence.

CCTV cameras are present in every room. These are here not only for customer and staff safety, but to aid us in settling any disputes with regards to behaviour and damages caused.

Abuse of the room and the equipment will result in charges being made to your card.

See damage cost list below:

  • Microphone – £100
  • Photobooth Camera – £150
  • Mixer Unit – £75
  • Seating cuts, stiletto holes in fabric – £100
  • Touchscreen – £250
  • Television monitor – £250


Here at The Electric Circus we kindly ask you to arrive 10 minutes prior to your booking. You will be asked to wait in our fantastic main bar area until a member of the waiting team is ready to take you to your room.

Any booking over 15 minutes late without prior warning to staff is subject to losing their booking and a full payment charge will be made to their credit/debit card. If we are running a little late, we will of course add on some bonus time to your booking if we can. If we cannot add extra time due to busy nights, we will issue you with an Electric Circus treat!

On a Friday & Saturday when we are busiest we will notify you both 10 minutes and 5 minutes before the end of your booking so we can wrap up your booking in good time.


The bringing in of your own alcohol on to our premises is strictly prohibited. If you bring your own alcohol you will be asked to leave and your booking will be cancelled immediately. You will not be given the option of your deposit back, and your card will be charged in full for your booking.


Cancellations can be made 48 hours before the date of your booking. A full refund will be issued if a cancellation is made within this time frame. Alternatively, you are more than welcome to move your booking to a future date instead.

Our large room The Lizard Lounge can only be cancelled 7 days from the booking date, any later we will not be able to offer you a refund on your deposit.

‘No Show’ bookings will be charged the full amount of the package or room hire agreed when booking.

Cancellation within the last 24 hours before a booking qualifies as a no show and there will be a charge of 50% of the room hire or booked package.


For our dance classes we initially ask for a 50% deposit to secure your class and we require full payment and confirmation of your final numbers 15 days prior to the class. If you tell us within this 15 day period you will be liable to pay in full for anyone in your group who has cancelled. If you decide to completely cancel your class outwith this 15 day period you are entitled to a refund.

By booking with us you agree to the above terms and conditions.
