What we do

Circus Workshops


We love contemporary circus and can teach workshops with a modern edge but if you want to add some extra colour to your event we can present our workshops as characters from any period of history or fantasy setting. There is a rich cultural history of circus and we have a good knowledge of Fools and Jesters throughout the ages as well as the history of all our skills. 

We provide circus skills workshop suitable for all ages.  All our instructors have many years of experience teaching circus skills and we can provide instruction in:

  • Juggling - with balls, clubs, rings and scarves
  • Diabolo
  • Devil Stick
  • Poi
  • Hula Hoop
  • Pedal-Go
  • Spinning Staff
  • Spinning Plates
  • Skipping
  • Chinese Ribbons

We can bring our our own outdoor arena which includes a 12' diameter circus style pavillion as a backdrop. Alternatively, all our workshops are suited for indoor venues with a good ceiling height!




Stilt Characters

We can offer spectacular, original characters and creatures to inhabit your event. Our stilt walkers work in pairs, as characters that compliment each other - such as a Fierce Dragon and a Bold Knight, Fairy and Faun or Victorian Lady and Gentleman. These characters will provide walkabout entertainment as they interact with each other and your guests.
