Childrens workshopCircus Workshop
Welcome to the circus workshop section of the children's entertainer's website, the ideal spot to learn about and hire a circus skills workshop for every style of activity.

The children's entertainer provides a hands on participation studio and demonstration where children learn the skills of devil sticks, diablo, juggling, plate spinning, stilt walking, hoola hoops, skipping, wheelie wheels, fun wheels, pogo stickans, poi ball spinning. The comedy car is available to finish the circus theme party. Additionally we can provide sets of juggling balls at £1 a set for your party guests to take home in a party bag complete with instructions.

The children's entertainer's circus workshop is fun as well as being educational and a focal point mixing people with a range of experience from different ages, a broad social set and mixed ability. I can cater for absolute beginners to advanced jugglers who wish to enhance their skills.

Pop in circus workshop.
A workshop teaching circus skills can be arranged in a style that is right for any occasion. That is to say, a scout pack or team building session could have a timetabled workshop allotting a set period on each individual circus skills. Where as in a shopping centre or family fun day the circus workshop is more often a pop in and have a go arrangement allowing people to chose what they do and how long they do it for. The pop in circus workshop is an excellent draw at an agricultural show or garden fete and never fails to be a favourite. At a pop in circus skills workshop the children's entertainer tends to outline a pitch with posts and bunting, enabling the circus workshop to remain in a single spot for health and safety reasons, as well as giving the children's entertainer a better chance at keeping an eye on what is happening.

Circus skills workshop examples:
Two hour party divided into spots of about fifteen minutes each for four separate circus skills such as diablo, juggling, plate spinning and stilt walking before birthday tea refreshments then hoola hoops, wheelie wheels and fun wheels.

School hands-on tutorial session similar to the previous example but no refreshment break lends to an additional slot to close the circus workshop with the opportunity for the children to pick whatever they want.

Shorter workshop focusing on a solo item often used for Corporate Team Building Pop In Circus Workshop. Participants come and go trying every different circus skill they want. This style circus participation studio favoured at family fun days and agricultural shows.

At circus skill workshops in schools (formal/regimental settings) rather than the pop in style (shopping centres, garden fete environment) the children's entertainer runs through an in depth yet light hearted demonstration of every circus skill prior to the hands on participation followed by one to one teach-in through the course of the circus workshop.

Many occasions would be enhanced by having a stilt walker meeting and greeting the children as they arrive. The children's entertainer could provide juggling double act. For the big bash the children's entertainer can provide a team of circus skills tutors or artists.

Other Workshops

Badge workshop,

The hands on participation fun of badge making can fill dead spots of an event whilst children wait to have their face painted, for their parents to finish talking to the sales rep, until it's their turn on the inflatable or for everyone to arrive at the party so the magic show and puppet show can start. Every child can be given a the correct size circular piece of paper to draw on. This part of the badge can be pre-printed with company logo or the kid's name prior to the children personalising the badge with colourful designs. Or the kids can look through comics and magazines to select a glossy colour printed picture that can be cut with the rotary cutter on the cutting board provided by the Children's Entertainer for use as artwork of their badges.
