Calling all Circomedia Alumni! 

Applications are now open to join us in creating a new winter circus show!

We are delighted to announce that in 2024, we are commissioning and producing a Winter Show, and applications are now open to join us for this exciting new adventure!

Our new Winter Show will be a family-friendly, festive circus spectacular for ages 4 – 12 and their families. It will take place at our St. Paul’s Church venue just before Christmas, adding some extra circus sparkle to our audience’s winter plans. Our hope is that the show will be magical enough to take on tour afterwards.

We are keen to hear from small companies who have an idea for an indoor winter show that we can help you to develop. The lead applicant from each company must have graduated from Circomedia in the last 7 years. We invite circus performers from all backgrounds, disciplines and experience levels to bring us your best show pitch and show us what you’ve got!

This is a fantastic opportunity for emerging companies to develop a new show with the mentoring support of Niki McCretton of Stuff & Nonsense Theatre Company and Circomedia staff. Other professional support will be provided by the Circomedia team including producing support, creative feedback, and technical and marketing support.

We are grateful for the support of The Leche Trust and the Garrick Charitable Trust.
