Circus Workshops for Celebrations & Parties
TK Arts can provide fun and interactive circus workshops at children’s parties, family celebrations and weddings.
Tom has loads of experience in keeping everyone entertained, with workshops from a couple of hours long to all day and evening.
We have enough equipment for up to 100 people to use at once, so long as you have the space!
Many children’s parties are in the local church or village hall, which is an ideal space for a circus workshop.
Workshops can be held outside on grassed areas (not concrete), though some circus skills are more difficult to learn in windy weather.
A Circus Party begins with Tom demonstrating all the equipment that the children will have the opportunity to learn.
This is always an interactive show and a chance for the birthday boy or girl to be picked as a volunteer helper. Adults may also be called upon to assist!
Depending on the size of the group, Tom will either teach everyone the same skill together, divide children into smaller groups and let them explore the skills on a carousel basis,
or run an open workshop where everyone chooses what they’d like to learn and when.
Circus skills taught: diabolo; flower stick; juggling balls and scarves; peacock feathers for balancing; spinning plates.
While there is a break for food, refreshments and the cutting of the cake, Tom will entertain everyone with his own silly mix of juggling and japery!
The second part of the Circus Party starts with a fun group game, which then leads into an interactive, comedy slapstick workshop. This creates another opportunity for some lucky volunteers to help Tom demonstrate the skills.
Children then get into pairs or small groups and devise short sketches combining the circus skills with slapstick, to perform at the end in front of each other and their parents.
We would wholeheartedly recommend Tom’s Circus Workshops to anybody!
We booked Tom to run a Circus Workshop for our daughter Meg’s 11th birthday party. As well as his undoubted performance skills, he was also a brilliant teacher, managing to engage all the children, even the quieter ones, with his unique mixture of circus and drama skills. We would wholeheartedly recommend Tom’s Circus Workshops to anybody!
A thrilling party, enjoyed by all! The children were fully engaged throughout, with lots of excitement and variety.
A thrilling party, enjoyed by all! The children were fully engaged throughout, with lots of excitement and variety. We met Tom at a summer fete, at Luddenham School. I was impressed with the way he engaged with the children, and his educational approach to demonstrating and guiding their experiments with circus skills. My daughter decided there and then that she would like Tom for her birthday party. She said: I liked it very much when you did a race with the feathers. I felt like it was meant to be a circus party! I fully recommend Tom for children’s parties and educational events and clubs at schools.

Thank you so much for all the fun that was had at Megan’s 10th birthday party. Even the shyest kids enjoyed it and since then, various spinning plates, juggling and diabolo-ing has been going on. A word from Megan: Thank you for my great party! I had the best party ever thanks to you. It was really fun learning how to do the secret tricks. We all loved the slapstick and acting out all sorts of clowning. Thanks!

Thank you, Tom, for providing great entertainment for the kids at our garden party. They don’t each other that well and cover a broad range of ages, but all thoroughly enjoyed their time with you, learned some new skills and enjoyed performing together for their ‘show’ – Perfect! Thank you.
Tom was great
We wanted an activity for our Christmas family gathering, with something of interest to all ages. Tom was great. He demonstrated then let everyone who wanted to, have a go. It was good fun and was enjoyed by everyone. I heard about Tom from his aunt who is a friend of mine.
