Who we are

Leeds Children’s Circus runs workshops and classes for children and adults. We’ve been around since 1989, we’re a registered charity and we’re run by a mixture of amazing volunteers and superb circus artists. We’re passionate about circus, community and bringing people together to have fun.

What we do

We offer a safe and supportive environment for everyone in Leeds to learn the art of circus skills. From learning to juggle for the first time to taking part in really challenging aerial practice, there’s something for everyone.

We run regular classes, workshops, performances and projects. We’re based in Harehills Lane Baptist Church where we have a very large cupboard full of circus kit: from diablo to unicycles, tight-wire to juggling balls, there’s lots of stuff to try out. Upstairs in our gym, we run aerial classes where you can learn trapeze, silks and hoop.

We run classes for beginners, improvers, families, children and adults. Check out what’s on offer, and get in touch if you’d like to find out more 

What’s to come

We’re currently funded by the National Lottery Community Fund and we have big ideas about our future. We’d like to be a centre for circus arts in Leeds and we’re expanding our range of classes and workshops to offer more opportunities to more people. And we’re working with more volunteers and circus artists from the region.

If you’d like to find out more, or get involved in our exciting future, please do get in touch – we’d love to hear your ideas
