Circus Skills for Schools, Nurseries & Clubs

Our Circus Skills workshops are perfect for nursery schools & pre-schools, schools (Key Stage 1-4), after school clubs, youth clubs, Brownies and Beavers. We offer a flexible approach and work with the organiser to tailor your circus skills workshop to meet your needs and the needs and ability of the participants.

The duration of our circus skills workshops can be from 2hrs to a full day. We even hold a "Circus Week" where the whole school can be taught and then finish with a show to parents on Friday. Alternatively, we can run a circus skills workshop 1 day a week for a term, for example for one year group and again finish with a show to the rest of the school and parents.

We are CRB registered, a member of Equity and follow the Equity Code of Conduct, first aid trained and carry out a full risk assessment before the day of the workshop. We also hold £10 Million Public Liability Insurance.

Please contact us by email, or telephone Winchester (01962) 735797, to find out how our Circus Skills workshop could be of benefit to your school or club.
