Circus Box Interactive presents
An introduction to CircusBox and a description of what we can offer your event.
Experience The Circus Box Workshops.
In a fun and safe environment the participants will have the chance to try their hand (or feet) at some of the skills of the circus (see list below). This encourages team work, co-ordination, balance and concentration but most of all FUN!
Workshops are available for children of all ages and abilities.
Structured workshops. We can cater for between 15 and 100 participants at any one time,from day long to week long (or more) workshops culminating with a performance by the participants.
Circus Badge workshops especially designed for Brownies and Guidescan be included within an event.
Drop in workshops. Where you can come and go as you please.
With a full range of circus equipment and tutors on hand we can cater for up to 250 participants at any one time.
Skills on offer. Plate spinning, juggling (balls, rings, clubs, scarves), pedal-go balance toys, diabolo, tightrope walking, devilsticks, stilt walking, unicycling, clowning, staff turning, performance skills, prop making and more.
Workshops can be held inside or out and if held on a good sized grassy area can be marked with our Little Big Top, a colourful 20 ft. pole with strings of bunting which gives the effect of a Circus Top without the canvas. This is the perfect space for the workshops and performances to be held in, and we can keep the equipment within the surrounding area. Area needed 60 x 60ft min.
Circus Box Workshops are ideal for Schools, Arts centres, Youth clubs, Drama and Theatre groups, Parties, Fetes, Carnivals, Festivals or just about any public or private function.
