I spent most of yesterday trying to spread Operation Circus to as many people possible and getting the space ready for lasts nights launch party. BBC WM radio came out early in the morning with the Dan Kelly show, a reporter, Daz Hale came out to have a chat and try out the Trapeze. Have a guess how he got on?

Listen to the interview here:


After that myself, Raquel and Zaq started to tart up the space a little and Zaq made loads of food that went down a treat… All was gone apart from a little bit of dip he’d made which a I gladly shovelled in right before passing out.

The Circus Space

The little ones came around 5pm and had a blast as we ran aerial and balance workshops and then as the evening progressed more adults arrived. We had some fab performances by students and our trainers, workshops by our fabulous teachers in handstands, hula hooping and aerial, and of course lots of food and sweets to top up the energy we had lost from the workshops.

Here is 15yr old Beth who owned the crowd last night during her performance on the silks…

People turned out in amazing dress up to fit in with the ‘pin up’ theme and it was truly amazing to see the effort people had gone to! Please help us out on day two by donating or sharing and help us to make this as successful as it can be!
