Here you'll find a full run down of all of the events and workshops running in the different areas.
If you have an amazing skill and would like to share with others by running a workshop please use the volunteer form below and we'll fit you in to your convenience. This does not have to be 100% juggling, slacklining, circus related. Past events include yoga, paper aeroplane making, & story telling. We're happy together and promote arts for all - volunteer your skill here or get in touch with any special requests.
