You can book  fun circus skill workshop activities for after Schools Clubs, Councils and Community Events, festivals and  Children’s Birthday Parties. He carries his own PPE and has enough equipment so that children do not have to share.

When organising your Circus Skills Workshop Steve recognises that every occasion is different and can adapt to your specific requirements. However, here are some suggested formats and things to think about –

. Outdoor events, it’s best to cordon off an area approximately 10 X 12 metres on flat grass area if possible

. Generally, participants for a circus workshop can be a maximum of 30 children at one time for one circus instructor, more if I bring a circus workshop assistant.


Steve (Spangles’) Circus  Workshops are available throughout the whole of the Devon, Cornwall and the South West of England. His Clown Shows and Circus Skill Workshops are perfect for all your Community & Council Events, Festivals, Fetes, Village Fairs, Christmas Shows, Schools and Playgroups, Wedding Entertainment, Corporate Events and Children’s Birthday Party Entertainment.
