Circus Workshops for Children & Youth Groups

Suitable for: Beavers, Cubs & Scouts; Rainbows, Brownies & Guides; Boys’/Girls’ Brigade; children’s centres; church groups; detached/street-based youth projects; playschemes; young carer groups; youth clubs.

Our circus skills workshops can last from an hour to a term and anything in between! They are suitable for all ages and abilities and can be tailor-made to suit your needs.

Skills taught: diabolo; flower stick; juggling balls and scarves; peacock feathers for balancing; plate spinning. Comedy slapstick will also be taught and everyone will have the opportunity to perform at the end of the workshop.

Circus Workshops require a large indoor space, preferably a gymnasium or hall. Rooms with low ceilings are okay for all skills except the diabolo, as this needs more height. Workshops can be held outside on grassed areas (not concrete), though some circus skills are more difficult to learn in windy weather.

From establishing, developing and managing youth centres, drop-in services, community cafes, street-based work and mobile youth projects to assisting, empowering, engaging, inspiring, instructing, motivating and supporting young people, Tom has always stuck to his strong, social education principles: helping people to gain for themselves, the necessary knowledge, experience and skills, in order to meet their own developmental needs and those of others.
