Some of our students are going to be performing on the community stage and we’d love you to come down and show your support. For some of them this will be the first time they’ve ever performed for others it’s the first time they’re performing a public show.

Come down and see them walk a tightwire, hula some hoops, build human pyramids and more!

Old Friends

Yesterday I had the pleasure of seeing two people I hadn’t seen in about two years – and boy are they big now!!

Old Friends

You might not recognise them but they were at a workshop I ran a couple of years ago when Claude Fisicaro came along and took photos. Here’s a photo of each of them learning circus skills that day.


Next Taster Workshop 23rd February 2013

Last weekend’s introduction to circus skills went really well and we’ve now scheduled our adult workshops for the first half of 2013.

Workshops are available on:

Here’s some of what people said about the workshop on Saturday:

“A really fun & different way to spend my Saturday!”

“Really fun, friendly & professional teachers”

“I did not expect the workshop to be so much fun. I have really enjoyed it. So did everyone here I know. [I] would definitely recommend this to our friends. We drove in from Oxford to do the workshop & still think it is worth the trip! Thank you.”

“Great discovery, I would like to do more!”

Yvonna from came along and wrote this review. She also made this little video of walking the tightwire:

Airborne Circus


Someone once told me “don’t throw balls in the house.”

Yesterday, Adam was featured on Someone Once Told Me having been told “Don’t throw balls in the house” by his parents. It didn’t stop him.


Mario Cacciottolo has been shooting SOTM photos for nearly six years (you can read about it here) and we’re very pleased to have him at our next Introduction to Circus Workshop on 3rd November. He’ll be there taking SOTM photos of anyone that wants to be involved in the project so thinking about what you want to write!

Check out the Someone Once Told Me website.
