We put on a circus cabaret at Feltham Arts Festival’s Fun Day this half term, performing group hula hoop and acrobatics acts. Jon Udry was our juggling compere, and afterwards we taught a circus skills workshop to children, including hula hooping, juggling and tightrope walking.

IYAF kicked off on the 27th of May at the Rose Theatre, Kingston with an amazing launch party.┬áCircus Suburbia’s youth circus took part in some hula hoop walkabout before previews of some great upcoming shows that will be featured in the festival this summer were performed in the theatre’s cafe! Performances for IYAF are looking great so be sure not to miss out! #wakeupkingston

A big thank you to Annie Bachman and Akim Lowe who not only perform with Circus Suburbia’s youth circus, they are also two of the many volunteers who help make IYAF as great as it is! Thanks to Annie and Akim and all the other volunteers involved in IYAF!
