Half Term Children’s Circus School

BEatniks circus school cancelled










Unfortunately we have had to cancel this Circus school with The Beatnik Collective next week due to lack of numbers booked on.

We will be running one again in the summer so if you fancied it but were a bit slow, the timing was wrong or you just missed it, then get in touch and we’ll let you know direct when we have dates booked in.

We are really disappointed not to be having circus fun and send apologies to those who did book- we’ll refund you in full, and appreciate yoursupport.

We hope you have a lovely week anyway, and maybe you could check out the FREE music activities on Friday at The Bureau with Blackburn Music Hub as some consolation.

Details from the planned workshop below still so you can see what we might do next time!


Following great demand the Bureau Centre for the Arts is delighted to present..
Children’s Circus School with The Beatnik Collective!

Learn hula hooping, devil sticks, acrobalance, juggling, plate spinning and more over the first 3 days and then take part in a circus performance to show off your skills!

Circus school will be running 9am- 3 pm Tuesday to Thursday, and 11-5pm on Saturday, with  a show in the afternoon. You must book on for 3 or 4 days.

To accomodate working parents we are offering the opportunity to drop off your children at 9am for 1 hour of art and crafts before each circus session.BEatniks-circus-school-MAy-web

This is an intensive course and we want the children to attend all sessions, it comes as two possible packages – but no drop-ins. The course is designed around the goal of empowering the children to create their own circus show from scratch. The young artists will be guided in enhancing their circus skills, as well as enjoying putting all aspects of a show together.

For those of you who have attended our previous drop-in sessions this will be a much more focused course. Experience is not essential.

Package 1: £60
Circus school: Tuesday – Thursday. This includes all the circus equipment the children will need as well as materials to make props and equipment and costumes (they can of course keep anything they make after, or let it be used in the show!) .

Package 2: £80
Circus School plus includes taking part in the final show ‘Running Away with The Beatniks’, this includes tickets to the show and refreshments on the day. Any extra tickets will be priced at £5.

Places limited. Payment must be received in advance to secure a place either through the ticket link, paypal or in person at the bureau.

Children must bring a packed lunch each day although fruit, crackers and juice will be provided throughout the day.

Sessions count towards Children’s University credits and participants can take part in Arts Awards at Discover level for a small extra charge of £5.
