Our Tightwire convention gave the local community a chance to learn a new and daring circus skill.

Over two days, people had the chance to learn tightwire and slackrope in a series of workshops, before being wowed by a highwire demonstration in Portland Square.

The convention also offered Professional Development workshops for circus practitioners and circus students.

The event ended with a stunning tightwire cabaret, showcasnig some of the world's best wirewalkers.
