Circus Skills Workshop
It’s the most popular and in-demand workshop we offer. Participants will try their hand at a variety of tricks and creating a real visual spectacle. Expect colour, exciting looking equipment and all the thrills of the big top.
Our circus workshop tutors are very experienced at working with ranges of abilities. They teach many circus skills workshops to all key stages such as; clowning, feather balancing , juggling, plate spinning, diabolo, stilts, pedal go, hoops, flower-sticks, tightrope walking, and for children older than key stage two, unicycling.

Juggling increases brain power
Complex tasks such as juggling produce significant changes to the structure of the brain, according to scientists at Oxford University.
In the journal, Nature Neuroscience, the scientists say they saw a 5% increase in white matter – the cabling network of the brain when trying a circus skills workshop.
The people who took part in the study were trained for six weeks and had brain scans before and after.
Long term it could aid treatments for diseases like multiple sclerosis.
