Sharing the joy of circus..
This will be our 4th year and we are opening our doors to invite artists from other circus schools and training spaces to book in and take part in our show, for an experience of performing in a beautiful circus tent. Circus is traditionally performed in a tent, and there is a special magic in our little big top.
- Are you a recreational artist who would like the opportunity to experience the excitement of performing in a real circus tent within a professionally produced production?
- Are you a professional or pre-professional circus artist who would like to showcase new and experimental work and gain experience in performing and insights into the production process?
You are welcome to email your act to firstname.lastname@example.org, Last year the festival costs are expenses are extensive, we are a non-profit community interest company, and most of our team volunteer their time. So we are asking for a fee to contribute your work to our show. Please check the get involved page.

Labyrinth Moon show – With Music from Kangaroo Moon
This is our Aerial Circus Therapy show. Join us for a journey into the labyrinth, an ancient symbol of wholeness. In the show we will explore mental health, and how creative expression and circus can be one of the most therapeutic tools to manage emotional, mental, and physical well-being. This is an Arts Council England-funded show, performed by some of our experienced students. This show shares an inspirational, uplifting storyline defining how the circus has been a salve for trauma. The show will include Straps, Loop, Aerial Rope, Trapeze, Aerial Hoop, Silks, and Triples Trapeze. Kangaroo Moon will be playing live supported by stunning professional aerial acts on Straps, Hand balancing, Aerial Rope, Silks, and Hoop.
Saturday Evening Professional Aerial Artists with Kangaroo Moon band
Kangaroo Moon will be playing live supported by stunning professional aerial acts on Straps, Hand balancing, Aerial Rope, Silks, and Hoop. Kangaroo Moon weaves many strands from world, rock, folk, and dance, with acoustic and electronic influences into a funky, psychedelic, heart-lifting wall of sound. Trancy, richly melodic and dancey, listeners experience a sound that unites the body and soul in deep and elemental dance
We will also be appearing at Unearthed Festival the weekend after.
