About us

Some where between "Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium" and "Nightmare before Christmas" you’ll find the many faces of Sweet Circus’s inspiring characters.

A family run circus skills and equipment social enterprise based in Eastbourne,  Sweet Circus provide a range of classes, experiences, workshops, community ‘circusplay’, activities, ambient entertainment with a difference, corporate training and performance. 

We also stock a range of tried and tested and circus toys and equipment for all ages and abilities and a range of old school sweets sold from big jars.

If you want to add some quirky circus fun to your event, festival, party, corporate function or product launch we can offer bespoke packages that include circus freeplay arena, aerial hoop ambient performance, and walkabout peg tag. Sweet Circus birthday parties are always a hit and can be customised for all age groups.

Workshops for schools, community groups and corporate training / team-building are available that will encourage the two halves of the brain work together develop resilience and confidence and generally have a darn good circussy time.

Circus fun for every one


Most of our classes are aimed at children but there are also opportunities for adults.  The benefits of learning circus skills are well documented and include the obvious improvements in fitness and agility, but circus is also known to develop confidence, resilience, concentration, social skills, team work and a positive self-image.  In addition it develops right brain / left brain communication which can change perspectives, enable innovation and future-proof your brain as you age. Find out more about the classes and opportunities to get involved by clicking on our classes tab and following sweet circus on facebook.

Explore the rest of our website to explore how we can circus up your event, festival, party, wedding, product launch, corporate function or staff training.  Bespoke packages available for every eventuality.

We also provide circus play and workshops to schools and community groups including working towards the Circus Scout Badge and Arts Award qualifications.  

Visit our online shop for tried and tested fiddle fun and skill toys for all ages and abilities.

We only stock products that are of the very best quality, we own them ourselves personally and we also put them all to the ultimate test – including in our workshop kit!!

Our workshop kit is used by folks of all ages and abilities to learn circus skills with us, it gets dropped and bashed like a workaholic crash test dummy week in, week out.

If you can’t find something in our online store, then drop us a line on FB, Twitter or Email and we’ll see if we can help you out with it.

Delivery on all our products is free within Eastbourne (use discount code "EASTBOURNE" at check-out), and whenever possible is delivered by eco-friendly cyclists.

If you are further afield we will post it out to you.
