Have you ever dreamed of running away to join a circus?
Well, now you can, because the circus is coming to Lower Shaw Farm, and you can be part of it!

No lions, no prancing ponies, and no performing seals. Simply nice people, good company, great tuition, wonderful workshops, and three days of pure circus fun!

There will be workshops, for complete beginners as well as for experienced circus enthusiasts, in juggling (balls, clubs, passing, and more …); staff spinning, plate spinning, devil-sticks, hula hoop, and more …; aerial hoop and silks; rope walking and slack-lining; acro-balance and human pyramids; uni-cycling; and performance skills.

There will also be a fire show, a mass fire club-swinging routine, and the lighting of a fire sculpture created on the weekend, by you!

After dark, we’ll have a cabaret, UV-light performance in fluorescent room, and a Cowshed party to write home about.

And on the last day, we’ll finish off, in the fully-matted play area, with a games session, using your new skills!

Families welcome, couples and singles welcome, and beginners welcome. Everybody is welcome, because anyone can learn how to juggle, how to really play, and how to develop and improve their circus skills. We'll show you how!

Jacob Hi-Ho, a multi-talented circus artist and former UK Slackline champion; and Juggler Jim, an experienced performer and workshop leader; and Darine Flannagan, an acrobat and play leader, will all help you learn new skills and explore your potential as an individual and as part of a group in a relaxed, friendly, and well-equipped setting.

And for anyone who just wants to watch, the workshop space also has comfy sofas!

This fully residential weekend, with great food, fun, and friendship, begins on Friday evening and finishes after a late lunch on Bank Holiday Monday.
