Greenwich Circus Festival is split in to two sessions; 'day' and 'evening':
Doors open 13.00
The day session has something for all ages. We have plenty of scheduled performances to sit back and enjoy including a clown show, our incredible Circus Ninjas presenting two specially devised 10 minute shows and 'Circus of Dreams' is the finale of our daytime programme, a circus spectacular with a cast of adult performers alongside our outstanding youth circus students ages 11-17.
We are offering free workshops in Flying Trapeze, Juggling, Static Trapeze and Acrobalance for everyone who buys a day ticket ... this year we are limiting workshop places so you will need to book your place for each workshop you wish to attend. We'll have food, a licensed bar, a circus games room for kids aged 5 and under, and of course a giant inflatable bouncy slide!
Once you have purchased your day ticket please visit this page to book your place on our free workshops.

The evening session begins at 6.30PM with performances from our adult full-time students. We are very proud to be running two full-time courses this year at AirCraft Circus ... the AirCraft Circus Foundation Course in Circus Arts and our brand new AirCraft Circus Level 2 Course. Both courses place a big emphasis on act creation and performance skills and these shows at Greenwich Circus Festival are the product of our students' 15-weeks of blood, toil, tears and sweat at the hands of the AirCraft Circus trainers. Those of you who have seen our full-time students perform before will know we expect some seriously high standards from these guys and this year will be no exception. Prepare to be impressed!
Next up is the AirCraft Circus professional company, the same team behind the recent critically acclaimed run of Midnight Circus at Jacksons Lane, with their new circus cabaret created especially for Greenwich Circus Festival ... 'Bon Apetite' a bite sized circus cabaret! Marvel at the neck-breaking antics of our Acrobalance duo, wince as our Aerial Acrobats catch themselves inches from the floor, witness our rather unique aerial hoop act with a roller-skating twist and keep one eye on the fire exit during our trademark fire finale!
