Circus Through The Ages
As the circus community as a whole continue to celebrate the extraordinary anniversary of 250 years of Circus, come join the Circomedia Youth Circus as they step back through time to see how it all began.
Friday 4th and Saturday 5th May will see the return of the Spring Youth Circus Showcase. 200 students from all 9 of the Youth Circus classes will come together to perform over this weekend of festivities. This will truly be a special show, where students who are saying goodbye to continue their circus careers share a stage with the youngest of children who are just starting out on their own circus adventure. Top that off with the Circus250 celebrations and it’s bound to be a truly magical show.
