Sweet Circus and Circus by the Sea love to get out and about at community events. Packages can include a circus play arena, taster workshops, walkabout, ambient performance, full performance and our pop up shop.
Circus Play Arena:
This is really popular with families and children. A team of friendly instructors and a van full of circus fun can provide drop in sessions throughout the day. Children make new friends in our arena and adults either get stuck right in or have a bit of a break watching their children having fun and gaining confidence.
Workshops and Taster Sessions:
We can provide a range of structured workshops or taster sessions for your event including learn to juggle, or aerial hoop taster sessions dance and drama workshops are also available.
Once attendees have had a go at some circus skills they often want to purchase an item so that they can continue this activity after the festival. We can bring a small selection of good quality circus toys which are available to purchase at the event.
Ambient Performance and Walkabout Mischief:
Both ambient aerial performance and walkabout characters are available to enhance the mood and feel at your event. Our mischievous walkabouts love to blow their kazoos, ride around on a minibike, tower above on stilts or dash about playing peg tag with your festival goers. We can bring a portable aerial rig or you can provide your own tested rigging. A number of performers are available with a choice of aerial hoop or trapeze. A typical ambient session would be 3 or 4, 15 minuet sets per performer. This can be repeated a couple of times a day.
Bespoke routines and performances are available and can be choreographed to your chosen music or themes. A typical routine is 3 - 5 minutes per performer and can be a number of times in a day. Contact us well in advance if you are hoping to include performances in your event so we can discuss your requirements and put together a pop up show just for you.
The cost of hiring us for your event is entirely dependent on the number of instructors and / or performers required and we always like to offer a bespoke service. Get in touch and tell us more about your event so that we can design a package for you.
As a guide our core team can provide a package to include freeplay, workshops and retail for approximately £250 a day. Performances Start from £150.
Freeplay sessions can occasionally be provided locally through our charity Circus by the Sea, thanks to a small grant from the National Lottery.
