Social Circus uses the teaching and learning of Circus Arts as a therapeutic tool for helping young people to develop personally.
Although the use of Circus in this way has been around for many years, the term was first coined in 2004 by Reg Bolton.
Social Circus can help participants overcome obstacles, build confidence and achieve skills and tricks that they might have previously thought were beyond them.
This can be an incredibly empowering experience and we at Circus Factory aim to bring this experience to everyone we meet.
Our Outreach and Social Circus programmes are suitable for diverse communities and groups of all ages, backgrounds and abilities.
We can deliver a variety of engaging circus skills including juggling, hulahoop, plate spinning, flower sticks, plus more dynamic activities such as tumbling and cartwheels.
Our outreach team can travel to a group's location and bespoke class content can be designed for a group's needs and abilities.
We ensure a fun and inclusive environment for all and classes can range from once off introduction visits to longer term courses and programmes.
To chat further about your group and what we can provide for them please contact our social and outreach coordinator

The Circus factory is like a big playground where creative people play and work with each other and learn from one another. Exploring new movements is one of the most beautiful ways to entertain your inner child.
