Circus Brings New Opportunities

Small World Theatre is announcing the launch of regular aerial circus skills training starting in October. This has been made possible through a larger building project to extend the facilities at Small World Theatre, Cardigan part-funded by The European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development: Investing in Rural Areas.

It has been the organisation’s ambition to rig the venue for aerial circus for some time. Ann Shrosbree, director said

Small World Theatre is offering circus training opportunities to young people and adults. We hope Cardigan will be as enthusiastic as we are and soon we will be offering circus training within projects and opening it up more people with varying abilities. This is a dream come true.

Without the help of a dedicated group of local people who held regular fundraising events to buy specialist equipment, this exciting development would not be possible. Thanks so much to all those who gave their time to raise funds, and to those that supported them on their imaginative fundraising ventures such as sponsored cartwheeling, music and food events.

We are delighted that Déa Neile-Hopton from Riddikulus Experiment will be leading and developing the training.

Coming up in 2018 is a series of Syrcas Intensive days which will give Déa a chance to meet and assess those on the waiting list. These days will also offer further training opportunities to students.

How to become an aerialist

If you are interested please contact us and join the waiting list. New opportunities will arise and we will keep you informed. Contact Hope 01239 615 952.
