Welcome to Greenwich Circus Festival - AirCraft Circus' weekend-long celebration of ALL THINGS CIRCUS! 

@ HANGAR ARTS TRUST, UNIT 7A, MELLISH HOUSE, HARRINGTON WAY. SE18 5NR

Greenwich Circus Festival is split in to two programmes; 'day' and 'evening'.  A separate ticket is needed for each session.


Day Programme

Doors open 12pm

The day session has something for all ages ... shows, workshops, walkabout performances and sideshow games/

- CIRCUS ALL-SORTS CABARET -

3pm.  A fun, varied, and skillful circus cabaret is AirCraft Circus' speciality.  Our professional company can always be found entertaining across London and the UK.  For the Circus All-Sorts Cabaret we have drafted in a fine selection of performers from the AirCraft Circus family including a mixture of professional London circus artists, our AirCraft Circus youth and adults class trainers (who are of course also pro circus artists!), and a selection of AirCraft Circus adult students.

- MOVIE NIGHT -

5pm.  A night at the movies with AirCraft Circus.  The feature of our daytime programme is the product of a 6 week act creation process under the direction of creative powerhouse Alex Frith.  We are taking inspiration from the limitless world of film. Sit back with some freshly made popcorn and see how many film references you can spot.

- AIRCRAFT YOUTH CIRCUS SUPERHERO SHOW - 

2.10pm. Our youth troupe take over the space with their Superhero themed performances.  They may be young but they put on an amazing show and you're sure to be entertained!  We have 5 weekly classes for under 18s.  Follow the development of a circus artist from 3 through to 16 years old.  You are sure to be blown away by what these youngsters can do!


We are offering FREE WORKSHOPS in Flying Trapeze, Juggling, Static Trapeze and Acrobalance for everyone who buys a day ticket ... you will need to book your place for each workshop you wish to attend.  We'll have food, a licensed bar, stilt walkers, free facepainting, and a massive inflatable bouncy slide!

Evening Programme

Doors open 7pm

- ALUMNI-ATI CABARET -

7.30pm.  We have had the privilege of having 100s of circus artists study with us on a full-time basis.  These guys have gone on to glittering professional careers and to continue their studies at some of the most prestigious circus institutions in the world.  We have invited a star line-up back to the Hangar this December to astound and entertain.  The Alumni-ati Cabaret will be kicking off the evening programme.

- A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S CIRCUS -

9pm.  The AirCraft Circus Professional Company present a brand new, shakespeare inspired circus extravaganza.  Let us lure you into our dreamy woodlands where flirtatious fairies fly and luscious lovers fight (and unite), whilst one cheeky little elf is up to no good!

We also have a licensed bar open until midnight with pumping music and dancing 'til the end.  Pop on down and treat yourself, it's Christmas!

PLEASE NOTE: The Evening Programme will contain adult themes and partial nudity.
