“My friends and I had the privilege to attend The CircusMASH Challenge, which proved to be the most enjoyable fundraiser we’ve ever attended. All of the helpers were extremely welcoming, and demonstrated clear proficiency and professionalism as they helped attendees achieve new heights in their circus skills arsenal, both literally and figuratively! Overall it was a fantastic day out, and I know that we’re all eagerly looking forward to attending the next event that CircusMASH run!”


So, are you ready to accept the challenge? Come and get your circus on with us this summer! No experience necessary and you’re guaranteed a day of fun… whatever age you are!!


“The day catered to all ages and genders and was highly inclusive of all levels of skills; just walking around The Challenge base was fantastic, being able to watch children try the tightrope for the first time as confused adults tried to remember how to juggle in the background. Entrants were especially encouraged to learn new skills and it was incredibly rewarding every time you conquered a new move.”

FLOAT! An outdoor circus experience…

CircusMASH presents FLOAT!

Welcome to a beautifully bizarre experience, mixing circus performances and engaging workshops… This is FLOAT! After a successful showcasing of FLOAT! in the summer of 2014 across several venues, this wonderfully whacky and imaginative story will take you on a journey of circus frenzy. You can expect to be immersed in a world of vivacious characters and vivid colours, filled with acrobats and aerialists, along with free circus workshops to bring the British summer alive!

FLOAT! will alternate between performances and workshops over the course of 90 minutes, as audience members sit back in the sun and enjoy the experience, or participate in the many circus skills on offer.
