Circus builds confidence, improves physical skills and encourages healthy choices… and did we mention it’s a huge amount of fun? Our community projects are all about relaxed, friendly fun and include circus, crafts, performance, storytelling, science and much more.

Circus of Lights:
The Circus of Lights parade on 24th October 2018 brought 71 attendees together to walk in three target areas: the Little France Active Travel route, Craigmillar Castle Park and the Innocent Cyclepath (National Cycle Network 1). Young people learned circus and craft skills to equip them to be more active, to be creative and expressive, improve their physical literacy and embed learning strategies.
Through this familiarisation and creating positive connections to these routes, we hope to see increase in uptake for this group in outdoor activities such as circus, walking, running and cycling.
Sarah: “All my girls have talked about is the circus sessions, they want to run down the street to get there every Monday, and they have been to every one. I’ve definitely seen an increase in their confidence.”
Letitia: “The event was wonderful and we had such a great fun that we want again and again. If you repeat this soon, please let me know.”
