Circus skills workshops and Shows as school trip

Enhance your pupil's learning with an exciting school trip. For an enrichment event or to support the circus topic, there is so much to learn and there are so many different ways to link our circus skills workshops and shows to the curriculum for pre-school, primary and secondary school children.

30 January 2017

Today our children from Oswald Road Primary School attended the Magical Circus! I can truly say that this was the best trip I have ever been on.
Melanie and Angelo were so lovely with our children. The setting was so age appropriate and so safe for our children. This was the easiest trip I have ever been on. The children thoroughly enjoyed the tricks and the apparatus. Thank you so much.
I will be recommending to everyone I know.
