Circus skills workshops are a great attraction for fetes, festivals and community events. I provide a safe, engaging, inclusive and fun environment where families can come and learn new skills and have fun together. I have something for all ages and abilities.
My circus workshops are self contained in an area of approx 15 x 15m set out with high visibility stakes and bunting to keep everything in one place – we don’t want grandma being run over by a unicycle now do we?!!
I provide music to add atmosphere, and a large blackboard displaying information on times of workshops and shows. As part of the set up I also bring along my beautifully hand painted circus sign, flags and an event shelter.
The circus skills workshop area created by Solo Circus can also be used for juggling shows too, see Juggling Shows for info.
For larger festivals, a small tent is usually provided by the event as part of the area.
All equipment is of the highest standard and I am able to supply expert tuition in many skills including…Ball and Club Juggling, Devil Sticks, Hula Hoop, Diabolo, Plate Spinning, Object Balancing (on hand, chin, nose and head), Hat Manipulation,Cigar Boxes, Stiltwalking and Unicycling/pedal-go.
It is also possible to have a juggling show or some walkabout entertainment as part of a package as well as a circus skills workshop.
Small events such as a school fete can be run on my own. For larger events such as festivals, I can provide a crew of professional circus teachers / performers.
Previous events where I have run a circus area include The Big Chill festival, Wychwood music festival, Lakefest, End of the road festival, Cornbury music festival, Minety festival, Greenbelt festival and so many fetes, carnivals and community events I don’t know where to begin!
Solo Circus has £10m of Public liability insurance and holds an enhanced DBS certificate. A risk assessment can also be provided if required.
Testimonial: “Mark Russell and the team from Solo Circus have provided circus workshops at a number of major music festivals. As the programmer of workshops and family activities I am looking for workshops that engage all ages, add to the atmosphere of the event and involve lots of people. Solo Circus workshops do all of these things. Solo circus also have lots of co-ordinated equipment and always make the area look fantastic with bunting, signs and bright matching outfits. Most importantly of all though is how the instructors engage with participants – encouraging them to have a go, showing them skills and making it a good experience for everyone.”
