Circus Society

At circus society we're all about meeting people, getting involved and having fun. Everyone has fun teaching and learning new tricks together, and we highly encourage members to learn and develop performance skills.

We cater for a wide range of skill levels, welcoming both complete beginners and experts, and have a range of our own circus equipment so that anyone can join in and learn tricks straight away. We occasionally organize beginners' sessions of various equipment such as juggling, poi, diabolo and unicycling, and our members have a huge variety of skills including staff, flower stick, hula hooping, contact juggling and more! We also have evenings where members get the opportunity to safely use fire equipment. Our experienced performers are available for hire for events both in and out of the university, and the society serves as a platform to advertise our members and their skills..
