Free circus school skills at The Rock this summer

Families visiting The Rock this summer will be able enjoy free circus school skills workshops.

We have unveiled our Circus House of Fun installation which will be in situ all month.

Located in the space in front of The Range, the installation features a room of wacky mirrors, a clown themed tunnel of laughter and a hoop throwing game. It’s free for everyone to enjoy every day.

Plus, on Wednesdays from now until 23rd August children can take part in Circus School and learn a new skill every week, the classes will include plate spinning, stilts, juggling and diabolo.

Circus School sessions start at 11am and run every 30 minutes. Each session will last approximately 20 minutes and the last session is at 2:30pm.

This week visitors were able to take part in plate spinning workshops and dozens of children attended throughout the day.

Arnold Wilcox-Wood, Centre Director, said: “We wanted to do something completely different this summer and we’re so excited to bring circus skills to The Rock. All of the activity is free for our visitors. We know it can be hard finding something fun and free for the children to do in the summer holidays, but with a different skill to learn each week The Rock is the place to be. Children will be given a report card to have stamped each week and those who complete at least three sessions will be awarded with a Circus School certificate.”
