Our Story

Our Story

Creativity gives us freedom, circus gives us capability and community keeps us strong. When you have this motto running through your life it’s hard to not want to pass it onto others and use what you’re passionate about to create a better future.

 

CircusMASH began in 2011. Why? Because Birmingham needed it. Circus sparks imagination, and by it’s very definition it brings people together from all walks of life and this is exactly how CircusMASH has grown to become the amazing organisation it is today. Community has come together. It wasn’t long after starting we noticed that everybody wanted circus in their lives, and as we continued to learn about the wealth of benefits learning and being part of a circus community provide, we realised that circus is another word for education and it is this that pushes our boundaries every day. From a seed planted in the beginning, Birmingham now has a thriving circus community with other organisations implementing circus through their work, as well as artists residing in the region to help to make the future a better place.

      

2018 marks the 250th anniversary of the modern day circus and we’ll be celebrating in EVERY way possible. We want to say a very special thank you to Creation Climbing Centre in Moseley and Tru Street Dance for being so supportive in our growth.
