Become a Friend

Support the next generation of circus artists

“I joined the London Youth Circus when I was 13 which absolutely changed my life. I became more confident, more skilled and it helped me to push myself, not just in circus but all areas of my life… I hope a future career in circus will take me all over the world but I’m glad to have started here.” - London Youth Circus alumni and future Degree student
