Educational Visits

Visit our building and be taken behind the scenes to learn more about the history of circus and our organisation. Groups will be able to observe our professional circus artists training in action!

There will also be a chance to take part in a short circus workshop and a Q&A with a circus teacher.

We can offer specific educational visits linked to the IPC’s ‘Movement and Entertainment: The Circus is Coming to Town’ curriculum for Key Stage 1 and 2.

Important Note: we will make every effort to make sure your visit works to your needs, however we are an educational institution with students taking priority of space use.  We also can not guarantee what our degree students will be doing on any day that you may visit. We are also unable to provide a place to eat lunch. We can suggest local parks, and may have access to space in the summer months.
