CircusWorks Gala – #SaveYouthCircus
Thu 3 September
Tune in to experience a full evening of circus performances and help save the future of youth circus. The CircusWorks Gala features jaw-dropping circus performances from young people and Youth Circuses across the UK alongside acts from professional circus artists, who unite for one night only to share their passion for circus, celebrate the importance of youth circus and share the impact it has made on their lives.
With live hosting from Annabelle Holland of Glorious Productions
Video editing & filming by Christian Britten of Rewired Life/Visual Influence
This is an online event to be enjoyed by family and friends of the young people, the circus teachers, the building managers and office teams who all continue to work incredibly hard to make youth circus bounce back. Enjoy the evening and feel proud knowing you are contributing the the future of youth circus in the UK.
The Gala is raising donations for the #SaveYouthCircus Fund
Many youth circuses in the UK have been left devastated by the Covid-19 crisis and are struggling to survive. Many are small businesses who have fallen through the cracks for government support. The majority of teachers are self-employed and are also struggling to make ends meet. Circus teaching is very much hands on, and social distancing will mean smaller classes and more limited skills. Youth circuses are concerned that it will be some time before they can resume business as usual.
Your donations will provide support to organisations who without help may cease to exist, and to enable young people to take part in circus who may not otherwise be able to afford it.
