The Five Ring Circus is the regional youth circus from the North East of England. We are a performing company and an extended community of circus enthusiasts from right across our region. We train circus, teach community workshops, host circus gatherings, take performances to festivals and other places and love all things Circus! Five Ring Circus is based at Circus Central in Newcastle.
Would you like to run away with us?
We welcome new members to join us by visiting one of our training sessions, or by simply getting in touch. Our regular circus clubs are facilitated by a team of professional circus artists and tutors – our circus mentors. Each session you will learn things like trapeze and other aerial arts, juggling, unicycling, German Wheel, stilt walking, acrobatics and performance skills. Clubs are always fun – even when they involve some hard work!
Youth circus sessions attract lots of different types of people – so there is something there for everyone to enjoy. It’s physical, creative and challenging whilst being very serious and incredibly silly at the same time! It’s a great way to meet new people and become part of a buzzing and fun community – our circus family!
