The Five Rings Circus is the collective name for youth circus clubs based in Newcastle, North Tyneside and is linked to UKs largest unicycling club in Stockton, JUST. Five Ring Circus is managed by Circus Central in Newcastle.
Our regular circus clubs are facilitated by a team of professional circus artists and tutors. At the clubs a variety of skills are taught, examples include trapeze and other aerial arts, juggling, unicycling, German Wheel, stilt walking, acrobatics and performance skills.
Circus classes attract lots of different types of people – so there is something there for everyone to enjoy. It provides a creative outlet for those who don’t like art (or do like art!), a physical activity for those who don’t like sport (or do like sport!) and a friendly, lively atmosphere which allows people to form a network of friends – beyond school and locality. Getting involved in circus opens up lots of great opportunities, but basically it is a fun thing to do in your free time. Once you learn a few circus skills, you will never get bored!
This website has loads of information in it, ways to get involved in circus, upcoming events and development and performance opportunities. Most of all it’s an invitation to you to become of part of this exciting, creative and supportive community.
